As announced in the European Green Deal, the Commission adopted on 14 October 2020 a strategic Communication “Renovation Wave for Europe – greening our buildings, creating jobs, improving lives”. It contains an action plan with specific regulatory, financing and enabling measures for the years to come and pursues the aim to at least double the annual energy renovation rate of buildings by 2030 and to foster deep renovations. This goal requires a revision of the relevant EU legal act, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010/31/EU (EPBD). The revision will focus on provisions that are central to boosting building renovation.
The Commission gathered the public’s view on the Inception Impact Assessment of the EPBD (22 February – 22 March) and will shortly launch a public consultation on the revision of the directive. In addition, we are organising a series of 5 workshops aiming to obtain stakeholders input to the preparation of the revision.
This is the first of the workshops and it will focus on setting a vision for buildings and a decarbonised building stock. The draft agenda will follow shortly.
