Updating Energy Efficiency Legislation post-2020 Benefits for people and climate, 11.1.2017

See report of the event

2016 is the European Commission’s year of delivery for the Energy Union, which includes updating the energy efficiency legislation post-2020, the Energy Efficiency and Energy Performance in Buildings Directives. Energy efficiency is no longer the Cinderella of climate and energy policy, but the compass for the transition toward a sustainable, affordable and secure energy system, which delivers benefits for people and the climate.

2017 will be the year for the European Parliament to deliver and to ensure that the energy efficiency legislation will be sufficiently ambitious and accountable to ensure that business and consumers can tap into the full savings potential and that energy efficiency becomes the first consideration in energy markets and system planning.

The lunch debate hosted by MEP Dr Liese, organised by the Coalition for Energy Savings and supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety will provide MEPs with an analysis of the Commission’s Energy Efficiency Package and space for a high level exchange with main stakeholders.
