  • EFIEES applauds the adoption of two ambitious and binding targets at the EU level for both energy efficiency and renewables
  • EFIEES welcomes the extension of the 1.5% annual energy savings obligation in Article 7, where both supply-side measures and end-use actions have their role to play
  • EFIEES particularly welcomes the confirmation of the provisions adopted by the ITRE Committee for the development of renewables in the heating & cooling sector, notably the efficient recovery of waste heat/cold and the role of efficient district heating and cooling networks
