- Calls for maintaining the extension of the 1.5% annual energy savings obligation in EED Article 7, with no loopholes and both supply-side measures as well as end-use actions included
- Strongly supports the maintenance in RED of the inclusion of the efficient recovery of waste heat/cold along with the recognition of the role of efficient district heating and cooling networks as major actors for the decarbonisation of districts and cities.
