PlasticsEurope welcomes the European Commission’s proposals for a revision of the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) which maintain the current framework of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) for all new buildings and establish a long term vision for the existing building stock. PlasticsEurope however stated that much more focus and priority should be placed on minimising energy consumption of existing buildings as it will not only reduce energy poverty in Europe but create jobs and have environmental benefits.

At the same time, we question whether the proposed legislative package will effectively unleash the intrinsic energy savings potential of buildings and building renovation as most cost-effective contributor to decarbonisation.

How “3D compatible” is the newly released, 1200-page strong “clean energy for all Europeans” package released today by the European Commission? How much does it contribute to a system shift towards more prosperity, legitimacy and leadership on sustainable energy? In other words: how is legitimacy secured by Democratising the energy system, empowering citizens and communities?
