05/06/2018 - European Heating Industry joins forces for ambitious energy efficiency legislation

Brussels, 5 June 2018 – EHI, the European heating industry joins the Coalition for Energy Savings and its call for ambitious energy efficiency legislation.

EHI, which brings together companies that are leaders in the production of efficient heating systems, has joined the Coalition for Energy Savings as its 31st member.

“By joining the Coalition for Energy Savings, EHI shows its strong support for higher ambition for the EU’s energy efficiency framework. An ambitious EU-level framework on energy efficiency will tackle the challenge of replacing 80 million old and inefficient boilers, currently installed in the EU, with high-efficiency and renewable heating solutions” said Federica Sabbati, Secretary General of the European Heating Industry (EHI).

“While the negotiations on the Energy Efficiency Directive are progressing, energy efficiency stakeholders continue to strengthen their voice in calling for bold legislative action”, said Stefan Scheuer, Secretary General of the Coalition for Energy Savings. “We called on energy ministers meeting next week to recognize the many benefits of a common and ambitious policy and warned of slowing down progress”.
