EFIEES welcomes the European Commission’s “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package including notably the revisions of the Directives on Energy Efficiency, Energy Performance of Buildings, Renewable Energy Sources and a new Electricity Market Design.
On the occasion of the publication of the “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package, Bernard Thomas, EFIEES´ President reminds:
“The Commission´s proposals aim at building a true EU Energy Union, which is a positive development. EFIEES strongly supports an Energy Union based on “Energy efficiency first” and the conclusions of the EU Strategy on Heating and Cooling, published earlier this year. The latter promote an integrated approach to the energy system and overall energy-efficiency solutions, highlighting the role of District Heating and Cooling as the main driver for renewable heating & cooling. However, some provisions of the new Clean Energy for All Europeans package raise concerns from our side”.
