ABSTRACT
The article deals with the requirements of the main European Union (EU) directives and other policy documents relating to energy sector. The main EU directives on sustainable energy development are those promoting energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources, GHG mitigation policies and other documents and strategies targeted at the energy sector. Promotion of use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency improvement are among priorities of the EU energy policy, because they exert positive effects on energy security and climate change mitigation. The framework of indicators can be developed to establish the main targets of the EU energy and environmental policies allowing to connect indicators via a chain of mutual impacts and to define policies and measures necessary to achieve the established targets, to track the impact of measures on the trends of targeted indicators and to assess the interaction of different market-based policy measures (EU emission trading scheme, flexible Kyoto mechanisms, tradable green certificates for electricity, heat, fuels in transport produced from RES, green tradable certificates for electricity produced from CHP, white tradable certificates for energy savings, etc.).
