The European Commission has published a Green Paper addressing a 2030 framework for climate and energy policies. As energy efficiency is good for the economy, business and employment, EuroACE will underline the importance of setting a binding target for energy efficiency in its response to this stakeholder consultation.
EuroACE, the voice of sixteen companies working in the field of energy efficiency in buildings, argues that setting this target will provide the strong policy focus needed to unlock the economic potential of the buildings sector. To provide the largest cost-effective savings potential, ambitious programmes for the energy efficient renovation of the EU building stock - including energy efficiency glazing - must be at the heart of any future climate and energy strategy.
