EU Climate and Energy Framework 2030: Energy efficiency is the solution!

Eurofuel calls upon the EU institutions to placing energy efficiency as the main driver for Europe’s energy and climate policies towards 2030. There is strong supporting evidence that tapping Europe’s energy savings potential would be more cost-effective than a single greenhouse gas emission reduction target. In particular for sectors outside the Emissions Trading System (ETS), such as housing, an emission reduction target is not appropriate. Reducing primary energy consumption is and should remain the basis for legislation in the housing sector.
