MEP warns of "slippage" on energy efficiency plan

Draft parliamentary resolution berates commission and member state failure to implement EU action plan

The non-legislative resolution was debated by the parliament's energy committee on Monday and will eventually go to a vote in the full assembly.

Prepared by UK liberal MEP Fiona Hall, the report berates the commission for failing to appoint enough officials to implement the plan, which was agreed last October (EED 19/10/06). It stresses that the 20 per cent energy saving target contained in the action plan is "entirely feasible technically and economically".
