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.

EuroACE reminds van Rompuy of last year's video address supporting high ambition in the buildings sector

Ahead of the Council Ministerial on 23rd October, EuroACE reminded President van Rompuy of the encouraging words that he delivered to the Renovate Europe Conference, the Annual event of the EuroACE led campaign, in October 2013 in which he expressed strong support for high ambition in the buildings sector.

49 Companies and Business Associations call for 40% binding Energy Efficiency Target ahead of Council Ministerial

EuroACE joins 48 other companies and business associations in a letter sent this morning to President Van Rompuy and Premier Renzi, calling for a binding energy efficiency target of at least 40% on final energy in the EU's 2030 Energy & Climate Package.

Building sector industries call on EU leaders to draw lessons from the risk of energy shortage and adopt an ambitious binding target on energy efficiency

Yesterday (16th October 2014), the European Commission published the results of the so-called “stress tests” evaluating the resilience of many EU countries to possible gas supply shortages this winter. Some of the results are alarming: According to the Commission, a prolonged supply disruption would mean that many EU member States will miss at least 60% of the gas they need. The Commission starkly concludes that: “This means that even private households could be left out in the cold”.

The building sector industry associations Eurima, Glass for Europe, EuroACE, PU Europe and the Renovate Europe Campaign regret that the recommendations made by the Commission in order to solve this situation are not accompanied by structural solutions, including the most important part of the EU’s energy infrastructure: its buildings, which according to the IEA hold 80% of untapped energy savings potential.

Renovation of Buildings - Essential to EU Energy Security and 2030 Debate

Leading industries call for 40% binding energy efficiency target

The 2030 Climate & Energy Package and the EU Energy Security Strategy both feature top of the political agendas ahead of the Ministerial Council on 23rd October. The 28 EU Heads of State have been asked to undertake stress-tests in order to assess their capacity to react in case of disruptions to energy supplies from foreign imports this winter.

In a letter addressed to the 28 Heads of State, three leading industry associations explain that “A wide-scale deep renovation of the building stock across the EU could drastically reduce EU energy imports with no higher costs than other supply-oriented solutions. Indeed, given that the building sector is the highest user of gas, reducing our dependence on gas should start with cutting energy waste in buildings”.

Ensuring that a binding energy efficiency target of at least 40% is secured within the 2030 Energy & Climate Package is a pre-requisite to triggering political leadership that will permit an ambitious renovation programme for the EU’s leaky buildings to be rolled out. With buildings identified as the first area where savings will be realised, setting a 40% binding energy efficiency target represents a golden opportunity to significantly increase energy security in the EU.
