Energy efficiency in buildings – the zero cost route for Europe to achieve its energy-saving, climate change, economic and energy security goals.
EuroACE companies have a total turnover of €140 billion and employ 172,000 people

EuroACE, the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings was formed in 1998 by twenty of Europe's leading companies involved with the manufacture, distribution and installation of a variety of energy saving goods and services. The EuroACE member companies employ over 300 000 people and have over 770 production facilities and office locations in the EU.

EuroACE works together with the European Institutions to help Europe move towards an efficient use of energy in buildings, thereby contributing to the EU's commitments on carbon emissions reductions, job creation and energy security.

The building blocks for Economic growth: Building Renovation
The building blocks for Economic growth: Building Renovation

Breakthrough report calls for ambitious renovation of buildings as a “win-win” option for the economy.

Yesterday (25th March 2015) the Joint Research Centre launched a new report “Energy Renovation: The Trump Card for the New Start for Europe” at DG GROW’s Construction 2020 event determining that a concerted effort is needed to weed out inefficient buildings from the European building stock in order to harvest growth in the EU economy. The report highlights the critical role of building renovation not only in reaching the EU 2020 targets and increasing energy security but also for jobs, energy and cohesion policies.

The building association organisation EuroACE strongly welcomes the findings of this report as a clear indication that renovating the building stock in the EU has the potential to deliver benefits spanning from energy security to employment and growth and can be achieved by fusing different policy areas into a coherent framework.

Highest leverage, quickest roll-out and widest societal benefits: Ambitious building renovation projects are best-in-class for Strategic Investment
Highest leverage, quickest roll-out and widest societal benefits: Ambitious building renovation projects are best-in-class for Strategic Investment

“European Fund for Strategic Investments must earmark funds for deep renovation projects” says building sector industry

A new report published today by Copenhagen Economics concludes that deep building renovation projects respond more effectively and cost-efficiently to the key operational objectives of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), and recommends a project selection process providing priority to “shovel ready” investments with a quick roll-out and high rate of return on societal benefits.

The building sector industry associations Eurima, Glass for Europe, EuroACE, PU Europe and the Renovate Europe Campaign welcome this report as a clear sign that building refurbishment is one of the smartest, most cost-effective ways of mobilising investments for growth.

Landmark Report Signals Increased Investor Confidence in Energy Efficiency
Landmark Report Signals Increased Investor Confidence in Energy Efficiency

The Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) today launched its landmark report entitled “Energy Efficiency – The First Fuel for the EU Economy” which is expected to mark the start of a significant increase in the rate and flow of investments into energy efficiency across the EU, especially in buildings.

“The involvement of a large number of financial institutions in the preparation of the EEFIG Report is a clear signal that the confidence of the financial sector in energy efficiency as a high grade investment is increasingexplained Adrian Joyce, Secretary General for EuroACE. “At a time when the European Commission is about to deploy a new Investment Plan for Europe with the Juncker Package, this EEFIG Report is very timely in explaining that market forces and financial institutions are increasingly ready to take the challenge of renovation”.

A key stakeholder in the EEFIG work, EuroACE recognizes the strong added value of this Report in spreading a better understanding of the range of effective financial instruments that already exist, or are in development for the buildings sector, across the EU.

EuroACE believes that the report could be instrumental in boosting the second version of renovation strategies (article 4 EED) awaited for 2017, if its recommendations are properly taken on board by the Member States.

Energy Union Framework: Big on Opportunity for Buildings - Small on Actions
Energy Union Framework: Big on Opportunity for Buildings - Small on Actions

The Juncker Commission has prided itself with the slogan that it will be Big on big things and Small on small things. The buildings of the EU make up more than 50% of all fixed assets and consume around 40% of primary energy in the EU. Construction activity accounts for about 9% of EU GDP and about 3 million enterprises are active in the construction sector providing more than 13 million direct jobs. Surely this is a big sector that deserves a robust framework in which ambitious action can be undertaken?

With the release of the Energy Union Package today, the European Commission acknowledged that there is a huge potential for energy efficiency improvements in the buildings sector in the EU, pointing out that 75% of the housing stock in the EU is wasting energy. But the Energy Union Package falls short of setting urgent and ambitious actions to address this wastefulness in our buildings.
