EED Review (since 2016)
In order to assess the EED in view of the 2030 energy efficiency target, the Commission has opened a targeted review of the EED, focusing on Articles 1, 3, 6, 7, 9-11, 20 and 24. The Public Consultation was opened from November 2015 to January 2016. EuroACE has provided a Reply to the Consultation Questionnaire and developed a Position Paper.
The Commission has issued a proposal to revise the EED within its ‘Clean Energy for All Europeans’ Package on 30th November 2016.
In 2012, the EED (Directive 2012/27/EU) entered into force with a transposition deadline in national law by June 2014. It establishes a set of binding measures to help the EU reach its 20% energy efficiency target by 2020. Under the Directive, all EU countries are required to use energy more efficiently at all stages of the energy chain from its production to its final consumption.
There are some specific measures and policies targeting the buildings sector, such as
- Article 4: long-term national renovation strategies to mobilise investment;
- Article 5: exemplary role of public buildings when it comes to renovation;
- Article 6: exemplary role of public buildings when it comes to public purchasing.
