Position Paper Improving energy audits, completing the energy efficiency union

January 29th, 2018 Posted in Uncategorized |

IFIA and CEOC International acknowledge the important progresses that have been made since the adoption of the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27). In a political context where important actors outside the EU are questioning an ambitious climate policy, the EU should take the lead and strive for high international standards in terms of energy efficiency.

On that regard, IFIA and CEOC International consider the Energy Efficiency Directive as a very forward looking and constructive piece of legislation. However, implementation in the different Member States is inconsistent and guidance is urgently needed in order for the Directive to unfold its full potential. In the context of the review of the Directive, for which a draft was tabled in November 2016, IFIA and CEOC International have published a Position Paper in which they share their experience on the implementation of the Directive in the different Member States.

The Position Paper is available for download here.
