Defra continues to make progress towards implementing the energy end-use efficiency and energy services directive by 17 May 2008. We started consulting on aspects of the directive that have an impact on the wider public, with a recent consultation on billing and metering provisions, which ended on 6 February.

Defra expects to consult stakeholders further on our implementation plans later this year. We will also use the opportunity provided by the forthcoming energy White Paper, and June's Energy Efficiency Action Plan—itself a requirement of the directive—to keep stakeholders informed of progress.
