    The Danish EEO can give inspiration as to how to design an EEO that meets the requirements and target of the EED, encourages cost-effective savings in industry, effectively includes third parties and implements a solid verification and measurement system. With regards to cost recovery, fault in reporting
    and penalties, Member States should carefully consider whether the obligated parties and the society structure provides credibility for a similar design. Lastly, the Danish EEO highlights the necessity of supplementary instruments to realise the potential savings in existing buildings if public and private buildings are not the only target are of the EEO.
