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.

Commission sticks to old habits and ignores Growth, Jobs and Energy Security Potential of our Buildings

The Commission revealed the last piece of the puzzle for the EU’s 2030 Energy and Climate Package with a 30% energy efficiency target at today’s Press Conference about its Communication on Energy Efficiency. EuroACE urges Member States to make this target binding when it is proposed for adoption at the European Council in October.

“Such a weak figure for Energy Efficiency is inconsistent with what the market is asking, what citizens are asking, what member states are asking and even what evidence-based research is saying” explained Adrian Joyce, Secretary General of EuroACE. “The outgoing Commission is deliberately turning a blind eye to the increased benefits of setting a 40% Energy Efficiency target - acknowledged even in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment!”

Energy Efficiency in Buildings - Politics cannot ignore economic necessity

22 Companies, including 12 CEOs, addressed a letter to President Barroso to express concern about the lack of focus and political ambition in the on-going negotiations on the EU Energy Efficiency Strategy. They urged the College of Commissioners to show leadership and to create a positive political legacy by proposing an ambitious target on energy efficiency, coupled with an unambigious energy saving objective to be delivered by the buildings sector.

Energy Performance Certificates: boosting awareness of efficient buildings’ benefits. EuroACE and VELUX Quiz the Commission and stakeholders

As part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week High-Level Policy Conference, EuroACE organises on Wednesday 25th June 2014 a joint event with its member company the VELUX Group, entitled “Quizzing the Stakeholders: Making Energy Efficient Buildings More Visible and Attractive”. Emphasis is placed at this year’s Quiz event, now a firm fixture in EUSEW, on the potential of Energy Performance Certificates to raise awareness about the multiple benefits and importance of increased energy efficiency in buildings.

The Energy Performance Certificate of one building is particularly in the spotlight during EuroACE/VELUX Group’s Quiz event: the Commission’s Charlemagne building. A giant-size poster this week on its façade presents its energy rating and the related actions to reduce the energy consumption of Commission buildings (see www.renovate-europe.eu)

In addition to improving energy security, reducing energy bills and creating local jobs, increasing the energy efficiency of the building stock in the EU also has the potential to release significant health benefits for EU citizens.

Energy efficiency and healthy buildings shall go hand in hand” says Ingrid Reumert, Vice-President, Public Affairs & Sustainability, the VELUX Group, speaking at the EUSEW Quiz event. “We spend 90% of our time indoors and we know from research that a good indoor climate, daylight and fresh air are essential to our general wellbeing, health, learning abilities and productivity.”
