24 EU countries missed a June deadline to put the bloc's energy efficiency directive into law, the European Commission said Wednesday. Cyprus, Denmark, Italy, Malta, and Sweden complied, although Denmark did not inform the Commission. The law would enforce the EU's 2020 target to cut energy use by 20 percent.
