Focus on Energy Performance in Buildings: Moving ahead with the Regions

More than 40% of European energy is today consumed in buildings and this figure is unlikely to decrease without determined and reasoned action. The potential for energy saving is as huge as the challenge of achieving it. At a time when the European Union is revising the Energy Performance in Building Directive (EPBD), FEDARENE showcases sound EPBD implementation measures that work in the European Regions.

EURIMA, which represents the European insulation sector, tells us more about the challenges and opportunities for European business and economy.

And this is not the only challenge ahead – the Renewable Energies Directive and the Covenant of Mayors are paving the way for more sustainable energy policies in Europe. Find out more about the EU regions’ contribution to these.
