Three main characteristics of the global energy situation currently are increasing energy efficiency, environmental consequences of energy development and intensive exploration of energy resources and new technologies. Energy efficiency is considered as a level of rational use of energy. If the level is higher the state is more energy efficient. Improvement of energy efficiency is one of priorities of The National Sustainable Development Strategy, but also a precondition that Serbia should fulfill to become a competitive EU member state. Therefore, energy efficiency is not just one of the main objectives of energy policy but also socio-economic project and a concept with a very positive goal -strengthening competitiveness of Serbian economy and improving living standard. In the next decade, Serbia could be closer to developed countries in the field of energy efficiency only if the suitable measures are carried out and if there is a grater state support. This paper analyzes an institutional- legal framework Republic of Serbia and its harmonization with EU Directive on Energy Efficiency. In this context, paper also examines results of the project ”Energy Efficiency in Serbia”, which is conducted by three ministries of Republic of Serbia - The Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Science and Ministry of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning
