Buildings directive deal: progress,but not living up to the EU’s 2030 efficiency goal
Brussels, 8th December 2023
Negotiations on the recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), the last open file of the Fit for 55 Package, concluded last night; while the agreed text brings some improvement to the current framework, it falls short of delivering the energy savings potential of the EU building sector.
The recast EPBD is a crucial piece of the EU energy efficiency framework as reducing energy consumption in buildings is essential to achieve the new 2030 EU energy efficiency target set in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). After challenging negotiations, the final agreement is weaker than the original Commission proposal, but it will allow for some progress, if Member States are serious with implementation.
