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 together employ 172,000 people and have a turnover of 140 billion euro.

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.

EuroACE congratulates European Parliament for its economic rationale in calling for a Binding 40% Energy Efficiency Target and Sectoral Target for Buildings
EuroACE congratulates European Parliament for its economic rationale in calling for a Binding 40% Energy Efficiency Target and Sectoral Target for Buildings

In its Plenary vote today on the 2030 Report (Delvaux/Szymanski), the European Parliament put its full weight behind the ITRE-ENVI Report calling for a binding 40% Energy Efficiency Target. EuroACE calls on the Commission and Member States to place Energy Efficiency and Buildings at the heart of the 2030 Climate and Energy Debate.

This vote is a clear signal demonstrating the political support for a new commitment on energy efficiency. It provides additional encouragement to the Commission to step up its ambition in defining a clear path for energy efficiency towards 2030, in the context of next summer’s review of the EU’s energy efficiency efforts.

Energy Efficiency January missed opportunity: Rendez-vous in June!
Energy Efficiency January missed opportunity: Rendez-vous in June!

Excluding Energy Efficiency from the 2030 Package is to consciously choose NOT to boost our fragile economic recovery and to lock-in high costs for future generations, renege on our climate commitments and reduce EU competitiveness” said Adrian Joyce, Secretary General of EuroACE, in reaction to the 2030 Climate and Energy Package unveiled today. “By proposing only a GHG emissions target and a Renewables target, the Commission’s White Paper genuinely ignores the crucial role energy efficiency should play in meeting our climate and energy ambitions in a cost-effective manner, based on the energy savings potential of each sector." 

By excluding an Energy Efficiency Target from the 2030 Package, the Commission also goes against the views expressed by the democratically-elected Members of the EP in their recent Report on 2030.

EuroACE welcomes the joint ENVI-ITRE Report adopted this morning on the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework, which makes 3 specific requests to place Energy Efficiency in Buildings at the heart of the post-2020 Climate and Energy Debate. The Delvaux/ Szymanski Report will be endorsed in the full Plenary early February. It gives a timely postive signal to current discussions in Commission and Council.

1) Call for 3 binding targets (GHG, RES, EE) with Energy Efficiency as Cornerstone at 40%

2) Call for sectoral target for buildings

3) Call to reduce the energy demand of the EU building stock by 80% by 2050
