Energy Performance of Buildings

The European Parliament and the Council will shortly discuss the Commission’s proposal on recasting the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (COM2008/780/Final).

Orgalime fully supports the objective of the recast to further improve the energy efficiency performance of buildings in all Member States. In the framework of the ELECTRA High Level Experts Group, our industry has, in cooperation with the European Commission and other stakeholders, developed a series of recommendations for realising the EU energy and climate change objectives of 20 % energy efficiency improvement, 20 % greenhouse gas emission reductions, and 20 % share of renewables by 2020 to which our industry is fully committed. If implemented, these recommendations render these targets achievable. The buildings sector has attracted particular attention in the ELECTRA work considering its high potential for energy efficiency improvements.
