Energy Performance of Buildings: Comments on the European Parliament’s first reading voting results

Energy Performance of Buildings

In view of the Council’s further proceedings on the Commission’s recast proposal on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive COM 2008/780 (EPBD), and in the light of the European Parliament’s first reading voting results, Orgalime seeks the support of Regulators for its key positions.

Notwithstanding the long and difficult transposition process of the existing EPBD in member states and especially in their national building regulations and construction practices, significant steps forward have been made and have helped to achieve a better framework for energy efficiency actions in the building sector.

However, more needs to be done to explore the full potential of energy savings in buildings.
