Why are we doing that?
40% of all energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the European Union arise in private and public buildings. If the EU wants to achieve its energy and climate goals, our private, public and industrial buildings have to use less energy. The public sector should be the pioneer and lead the way to an energy efficient building stock.
„A big push is needed! All EU Member States need to develop a national strategy for the renovation of their building stock.“
(Article 4 of the Energy Efficiency Directive)
