The European Association of Electrical Contractors (AIE) recently reported that the draft Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) was approved by the European Parliament's Energy Committee on 28 February, despite differences between political parties.

The Committee said the directive would not only save energy but reduce CO2 emissions and drive up demand for carbon allowances under the EU Emissions Trading scheme.

According to the report, if the directive is to succeed, it will have to satisfy national governments that are less supportive of binding efficiency legislation and which are asking for more flexibility and a number of country-specific considerations.

EU countries will have to set out a roadmap for achieving energy savings of 80% in the buildings sector by 2050, with a binding deep renovation rate of 2.5% per year for public buildings. Amongst the other measures adopted by the Committee were requirements for energy companies to deliver 1.5% in annual energy savings, binding financial instruments and better consumer information.
