The European Commission's department for Energy is organising a Stakeholders' Event on the upcoming reviews of the energy efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU) and the energy performance of buildings Directive (2010/31/EU).
Reviews of both these Directives follow the adoption of the Energy Union Strategy in February 2015 and are inline with the goal of promoting energy efficiency as an energy source in its own right. Both reviews are foreseen for adoption during the 3rd quarter of 2016.
The Commission has recently finalised the evaluations of both Directives while work on the impact assessments is advancing.
The aim of the event is to discuss the findings of these evaluations, possible policy options and ways forward for the energy efficiency Directive - in the morning session - and for the energy performance of buildings Directive - in the afternoon session.
