Obligation scheme

Obligation scheme: encouraging energy savings

Since January 2015, the Luxembourg government introduced a mechanism that obliges natural gas and electricity suppliers to generate energy savings for consumers. The obligation scheme is an innovative measure for mobilising energy efficiency.

Electricity and natural gas suppliers, the so-called 'obligated parties', offer services, assisting and advising consumers on the implementation of energy-efficiency measures.
