On 30 October 2015, EuroACE submitted its reply to the online questionnaire on the EPBD Consultation and issued a Position Paper on the topic. The Alliance called for the EPBD to do more for renovation and support the realisation of an nZEB-level building stock by 2050, e.g. via more holistic approach to renovation to maximise energy and economic gains, improved EPCs to evolve into proper work planning tools, and upskilling of the workforce. Also, the EPBD should be more thoroughly implemented, and supported by well-designed financing schemes. This will enable the EU to meet its objectives and to unleash the multiple benefits of building renovation, inter alia comfort, energy security, jobs, growth and resilience for a smooth energy transition.
