    Policy description On 4 February 2010, the Finnish Government passed a resolution on energy saving and energy efficiency measures to be implemented during the current decade. This government decision is based on a June 2009 report by a broad-based Energy Efficiency Committee, appointed by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.The energy efficiency measures form an updated Action Plan for Energy Efficiency to 2020 and implement the objectives of the Long-Term Climate and Energy Strategy. The target is to decrease the final energy consumption by 37 TWh in 2020 as compared to the baseline scenario. The resolution contains 125 measures, with some continuations of existing policy, some to be implemented by the end of 2011, and others to be impelemented between 2011 and 2020
