EFIEES hosts an open discussion on the 20th of April 2022, 14:00-15:30, with representatives from all three EU legislators and the Coalition for Energy Savings as guest speakers: “Scaling up energy efficiency actions for buildings, heating and cooling: How can the Energy Efficiency Directive better contribute?”


Energy efficiency is a crucial cornerstone for reaching the EU’s climate targets and ensuring energy security. ​Heating and cooling stand for half of the EU’s energy demand and buildings 40% of the energy consumption.

EFIEES invites you to a public debate on the tools, challenges and opportunities to scale up energy efficiency actions in these sectors through legislative changes in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), including special attention given to district solutions and active energy management.
