COGEN Europe regrets the side-lining by EU leaders of energy efficiency in the 2030 climate and energy policy framework and urges the incoming European Commission to push for the practical adoption of energy-efficient solutions in Europe.
COGEN Europe welcomes the increased focus on heat in the European Commission’s winter ‘stress test’ communication but calls for greater attention to reducing primary energy consumption in industry, the tertiary and residential sectors. Improving energy security in the longer term requires swift and forward-thinking implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive.
