A strong Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) is the opportunity to put in place a legislative framework that accelerates energy savings in the EU in a well-planned and sustained way. Legislators need to take the EED trilogues very seriously: they must send the signal to EU citizens that, beyond energy sobriety, energy efficiency is the way to go to save energy, lower bills and ensure an independent, inclusive, and climate neutral EU.
