To determine the energy savings predicted by energy efficiency measures in the period covered by the 2nd EEAP, the determined achievement of the real energy saving is based on the energy end-use, i.e. 41.94 ktoe at the end of 2012 as the new starting point for the next period. (...) national indicative target of at least 9%4 (i.e. according to the second EEAP, there are possibilities for 9.24%, which represent energy savings in amount of 151.22 ktoe) by 2018 by 2018 against a 2012 baseline
