Renovation Strategies Get a Boost as MEPs Vote for Stronger Ambition - Build Upon

Renovation Strategies Get a Boost as MEPs Vote for Stronger Ambition

 On 12 October, Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) in the Industry and Energy Committee (ITRE) voted to adopt the BENDSTEN report on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), providing Parliament with a strengthened position ahead of negotiating talks with the European Council on the final version of the EPBD.

ITRE’s adoption of the report will ensure that the contribution of the buildings sector to the overall EU energy efficiency target is maximised through improved national long-term renovation strategies, which will now include milestones and indicators to monitor progress towards 2050 targets.

MEPs also voted for building renovation passports (BRPs) – guides that outline relevant measures and renovations that would improve the energy performance of a specific building. These could include trigger points to ensure that renovations happen at the most appropriate time in the lifespan of a building.

The inclusion of a vision for a Nearly Zero Energy Building Stock by 2050 calls for buildings to become as energy efficient as possible, with maximum renewable energy supply.

MEPs decision to vote in favour of renovations strategies aligned with long-term 2050 goals and the support for BRPs is particularly welcome by the GBCs in the BUILD UPON project who identified the importance of these measures via in their recommendations on renovation, published shortly after the BUILD UPON project concluded.

The final version of the EPBD will only be adopted once ‘trilogue’ discussions are concluded -trilogue is the process by which the European Commission, Parliament and Council negotiate on the basis of their respective positions. The European Council adopted their position in June. A final position on the EPBD is expected in December.

 

The ERN’s position paper is available here.
