The Energy Efficiency Directive (EED 2012/27/EU) is the headline piece of legislation on which the EU is pinning its hopes for the achievement of the 2020 energy efficiency target. If its provisions are ambitiously and fully implemented, then it will contribute about 75% of the energy efficiency improvements needed to reach the 2020 target.
Within the text, there are several elements that relate to buildings. To ensure that the potential of energy efficiency in the built environment is reached, EuroACE has compiled in this paper, its “TOP 10” issues for implementation of the EED. These are given in descending order of priority as seen from the point of view of the member companies of EuroACE in the expectation that our input can help in the implementation work of this important Directive.
