The information presented in the country profiles originates mainly from the information submitted under the EU Monitoring Mechanism Decision (2), the UNFCCC, the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) (3), the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) (4) as well as from Eurostat and national action plans and progress reports on renewable energy and on energy efficiency. Each profile includes a brief assessment of progress towards the country's progress towards its individual targets concerning GHG, renewable energy and energy efficiency, where applicable. In the EU: - Legally binding targets under the Kyoto Protocol's first commitment period (2008–2012) - Annual legally binding GHG targets for the period from 2013 to 2020 concerning emissions not covered by the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) - Legally binding targets on the 2020 share of renewable energy sources (RES) in gross final energy consumption - Non-binding targets for energy efficiency A detailed overview of the definitions, sources and scope of the information used in the country profiles is presented in Chapter 2. The country profiles (see Chapter 4) are divided into two main parts: 1. A quantitative two-page summary of key country data, trends, and targets for GHG emissions, renewable energy and energy efficiency. 2. A short, mainly qualitative, three-page overview of main policies and measures in key sectors addressing GHG emissions, including renewable energy and energy efficiency.
