Energy Efficiency Directive – comprehensive overview available
The Coalition for Energy Savings, a European non-for profit association advocating energy efficiency as the driving force towards a climate neutral Europe, has now published an overview of the recently launched Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). The coalition, of which Climate Alliance is also a member, pushed hard for higher ambitions and the inclusion of energy poverty. The publication showcases the key EED provisions, including the implications for local authorities, e.g.:
- Public authorities are encouraged to obtain support from sustainable energy agencies
- Renewable energy communities should be recognised by member states and actively supported as well as energy efficiency at local or household level
- Member States, including regional and local authorities should be encouraged to make full use of the European funds available to trigger private and public investments in energy efficiency improvement measures
More details can be found in the newly published Coalition for Energy Savings briefing.
