ClientEarth provides legal arguments demonstrating that energy savings required to be reached within the energy efficiency obligation scheme (Article 7.1 of the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU) have to be achieved within the period 2014-2020. Article 7.7(c) is a flexible shifting mechanism within the scheme, but does not allow Member States to count savings from outside the duration of the scheme, i.e. from outside the period 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020, or be additional to the maximum discount allowed under Article 7.3.
