EFIEES welcomes the European Commission’s proposal to recast the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), andnotably the focus on cost-effectiveness, as it is of utmost importance to decarbonise the building sector and especially worst-performing buildings, to ensure a just and efficient transition.

In reaction to the proposal published in December 2021, and with regards to our mission we would like to highlight two key elements that need to be enshrined in the EPBD recast:

  1. On the top of accelerating renovation rate, the EPBD should also focus on dynamic energy performance and further promotion of effective energy management
  2. Linking energy and environmental performance, especially at a district level, is needed to ensure an effective roll-out of EPBD tools
