Yet, despite such a significant consumption and emissions reduction opportunity, energy efficiency gains have slowed significantly since 2015, and the rate at which the building stock improves its energy performance remains at just 1%, even as EU policy goals require this figure to triple between now and 2030.
Together with several NGO’s we asked the European Commission to adopt binding national targets, moving from ambition to implementation.
