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.

3% Renovation of Public Buildings: Member States fail to kickstart the market
3% Renovation of Public Buildings: Member States fail to kickstart the market

A Report published today by the Coalition for Energy Savings “Implementing the EU Energy Efficiency Directive: Analysis of Member States plans to implement Article 5” reveals loopholes in implementation and a lack of political will to boost the renovation of central government buildings across the EU.

Out of the 28 EU Member States, 11 chose to implement Article 5 by adopting the default approach by renovating 3% of the total floor area for the buildings listed in their published inventory, and 17 by adopting the alternative approach (see Press Release Annex for map).

“The main objective of Article 5 is for the public sector, which has full control over its buildings, to lead by example and act as an important trigger to stimulate market transformationexplained Adrian Joyce, Secretary General of EuroACE. “National governments should be setting the example for regional and local governments, and opening up the market for the residential and commercial building stock. Instead, Member States have reported confused or limited information, and no clear plan on renovations to be undertaken to achieve the required energy savings.”

Better Regulation: Better Buildings lead to Better Results
Better Regulation: Better Buildings lead to Better Results

The Commission Communication on Better Regulation for Better Results can and should be used as an opportunity to create a stable and long-term EU policy framework for ambitious energy efficiency in buildings, both new and existing. Building efficiency renovations lead to a better economy in so many ways – more local jobs, cost savings, increased energy security, lower emissions, better indoor climate, lower fuel poverty – that it has to be a policy area driven by ambitious EU legislation! The current low ambition in new targets and lack of implementation and enforcement of existing rules equals bad governance of our common building stock.

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.
