Shaping the decade of building renovations
Shaping the decade of building renovations:
increasing energy efficiency, reducing emissions and lowering energy prices through the revision of the EPBD

Reaching climate neutrality by 2050 with a just transition is a great challenge ahead. One of the main areas on which the EU must concentrate its efforts is the buildings sector, responsible for about 40% of the total EU’s energy consumption and 36% of GHG emissions.

With only 1% of all buildings undergoing renovations every year, the revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive is an essential driver for the Union to increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy bills.

The European Commission is assessing several policy options. One of these options is the mandatory application of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) which have already been introduced by member states and abroad the EU.

The high-level event, organised by the European Alliance to Save Energy, is an exchange of views on how to increase energy efficiency and decarbonise buildings while boosting economic growth.
