A dominant topic this year, which will surely continue in 2022 as well, is the Fit-for-55 package. Many directives are currently under revision as a consequence to reach the ambitious climate targets for 2030 and 2050 set by the European Commission. EuroWindoor supports the climate targets and is therefore especially glad to have had a meeting with members of the European Commission to talk about the “Renovation Wave”. In the meeting EuroWindoor was able to show the importance of doubling and expanding the renovation wave as well as sector-specific-sub-targets.
The Energy Efficiency Directive is also a part of the Fit-for-55 package for which EuroWindoor just published its feedback on the proposal to recast the EED. Introducing the Energy Efficiency First principle and binding targets on EU level is strongly supported by EuroWindoor in order to reduce CO2 emissions. Nonetheless EuroWindoor still recommends setting binding targets on national level to make sure the climate targets are met.
2022 promises to be an eventful year as well. Soon the Commission proposal for the revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) is expected to be published and will carry on into 2022. The EPBD is a very important topic for EuroWindoor as it is one of the main legislative acts to help reduce emissions and boost the renovation rate. In addition to that EuroWindoor is also anticipating the revision for the Construction Product Regulation (CPR) in 2022. EuroWindoor will keep going to publish position papers with further insight for the upcoming developments.
EuroWindoor wishes everyone happy Holidays and happy New Year!
We are wishing you holidays filled with fun and laughter, and very best wishes for a prosperous new year!
Hope to see you on the Fensterbau Frontale 2022 in Nuremberg.
