Energy efficiency in buildings – the zero cost route for Europe to achieve its energy-saving, climate change, economic and energy security goals.
EuroACE companies employ around 225 000 people and have around 765 production facilities and office locations in the EU

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 225 000 people and have over 765 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.

40% Energy Efficiency Target: the EU Parliament sends the right message, emphasises action on buildings
40% Energy Efficiency Target: the EU Parliament sends the right message, emphasises action on buildings

 Yesterday (15th December 2015), the European Parliament adopted, by a large majority, the report on the EU Energy Union Framework prepared by Polish Rapporteur, Marek Grobarczck (ECR).  EuroACE strongly welcomes this report which recalls the benefits of energy efficiency and building renovation to meet the multiple targets of the Energy Union, and restates the Parliaments’ support for an ambitious, binding 40% energy efficiency target.  Coming just after the adoption of the Paris Agreement at COP21, this is a clear signal of political willingness and a clear indication of where to start – with energy efficiency!

 EuroACE welcomes developing a methodology to ensure progress by Member States when implementing energy efficiency legislation

 

 Yesterday, on 26 November, the Council of the EU adopted conclusions on the governance system of the Energy Union, which will serve as a methodology to ensure that legislation, including on energy efficiency, is well implemented by Member States, and that agreed targets will be met. EuroACE encourages Member States to continue working and sharing best practices in order to deliver the Energy Union objectives and ambition for 2030.

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive must become a key enabler for building renovation and lead to an nZEB-level building stock by 2050 - EuroACE responds to the public consultation on the EPBD
The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive must become a key enabler for building renovation and lead to an nZEB-level building stock by 2050 - EuroACE responds to the public consultation on the EPBD

On 30 October 2015, EuroACE submitted its reply to the online questionnaire on the EPBD Consultation and issued a Position Paper on the topic. The Alliance called for the EPBD to do more for renovation and support the realisation of an nZEB-level building stock by 2050, e.g. via more holistic approach to renovation to maximise energy and economic gains, improved EPCs to evolve into proper work planning tools, and upskilling of the workforce. Also, the EPBD should be more thoroughly implemented, and supported by well-designed financing schemes. This will enable the EU to meet its objectives and to unleash the multiple benefits of building renovation, inter alia comfort, energy security, jobs, growth and resilience for a smooth energy transition.

More detailed information can be found in the EuroACE Reply to the Online Questionnaire as well as in a Position Paper, which are located on the EuroACE website, at
