EuroWindoor AISBL published the Joint Position Paper Revising the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive to tap into the energy saving potential of modern windows

Frankfurt am Main, November 9th, 2016. EuroWindoor AISBL joins strong industry position supporting to call for a modernised EPBD to unleash the energy savings potential of high performing windows.

Windows and glazed areas in buildings are essential to the overall energy performance of buildings, but also to the general comfort and well-being of people living and working in these buildings. In the joint position paper issued today, the signatories call on the European Commission to consider three priorities ahead of its review of the EPBD:

  1. Increasing the renovation rate of European buildings to obtain larger energy use reductions
  2. Using the energy balance approach to assess the energy performance of windows
  3. Recognising the benefits of daylight, natural ventilation and solar management
