Tackling rising energy prices: The untapped potential of the Energy Efficiency Directive

Nov 18, 2021 | Events, Latest

At a time of high energy prices, the potential of energy efficiency in reducing household bills and increasing the EU’s energy security remains untapped.

The recast of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) represents a unique opportunity to increase energy savings in Europe. It can provide a structural answer to high energy prices while delivering benefits for society as a whole, such as more local jobs, better health, and improved air quality. Simultaneously, cutting energy consumption is indispensable for achieving Europe’s 2030 climate goal and the EU climate neutrality objective.

As the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union are starting to adopt their positions on the EED recast, this event will discuss how to strengthen the European Commission’s proposal to achieve the EU’s climate and energy targets in a way that is affordable for citizens.

Programme:

15h00 – Welcome and Opening
• Arianna Vitali Roscini – Secretary General, Coalition for Energy Savings.

15h05 – Key note address – The recast of the EED: Setting the scene
