AmCham EU has always called for an ambitious energy efficiency policy in buildings as we believe there is strong potential in this sector to deliver on the EU’s ambition. The Commission’s proposal is a step in the right direction but more ambition is needed, particularly in terms of renovation strategy and targets. Furthermore, today’s smart and connected buildings should be seen as a key part to enable a well-functioning, integrated EU electricity market – as buildings can both store and generate energy, apart from being a major consumer.
