Targets for Energy Efficiency Directive, EED
READ all about it: ARTICLE 5
The Directive brings forward legally binding measures to step up Member States’ efforts to use energy more efficiently at all stages of the energy chain
Opportunities and challenges of the implementation
The current average building energy renovation rate in the EU is below 1%. The raison d’être of EED Article 5 (and the closely related articles 4 and 6) is to boost energy refurbishment in the central government sector, thus showcasing deep renovation of public buildings and inspiring the sub-national government level. Therefore Article 5 is seen as a great opportunity to kick-start the deep energy retrofit market, by NGOs and construction sector organisations advocating energy refurbishment and increased energy performance of the European building stock.
