In the year of delivery of the Energy Union, and seven months after the Paris Agreement, your own personal commitment is crucial to ensure that the EU initiates and implements energy policies able to ensure jobs and growth for our citizens and better market opportunities for industry operating in the EU.

Letter to the European & Environment Councils: 70 companies and business organizations from energy efficiency and renewable sectors call Member States to recognize their cost-effective contribution to decarbonization

The European Union (EU) played a key role in making the Paris Agreement a cornerstone of global commitment to tackle the negative impact that climate change could have on our economies and societies. The EU must now reflect in a coherent way such an ambitious and binding international agreement in the Energy Union legislative framework for 2030. The cost-effective contribution that both energy efficiency and renewable energy can provide to the European transition towards a low-carbon economy must be fully embedded in the EU climate and energy policies.

EU-ASE response to the public consultation on the “Revision of Directive 2012/27 EU on Energy Efficiency”

Article 1 provides the general framework for the promotion of energy efficiency within the Union in order to ensure the achievement of the EU 20% energy efficiency headline target by 2020. In addition and more specifically, Article 3 requires that each Member State sets an indicative national energy efficiency target based on either primary or final energy consumption, primary or final energy savings or energy intensity. In setting the targets, Member States should take into account a number of provisions set out in Article 3(1).

 

As regards the EU energy efficiency target for 2030, the European Council agreed in October 2014 on an indicative target at the EU level of at least 27% (compared to projections) to be reviewed by 2020 having in mind an EU level of 30%. Therefore, the existing policy framework should be updated to reflect the new EU energy efficiency target for 2030 and to align it with the overall 2030 Climate and Energy framework.

Vogliamo un’Italia più efficiente

14 imprese ed associazioni europee chiedono al Governo italiano più efficienza

Ben 14 imprese ed associazioni europee chiedono al Governo italiano di sostenere una robusta governance europea per l’energia al 2030, che punti sull’efficienza energetica. L’iniziativa prende il nome di Euase, European Alliance to Save energy, e ne fanno parte 1E, Kingspan, Knauf Insulation, Opower, Philips, Schneider Electric, Siemens, E3G, European Climate Foundation con le italiane Kyoto Club, Assorinnovabili, Anev e Coordinamento Free.

Le associazioni, in particolare, si riferiscono al pericolo che il Governo italiano non voglia vincoli sul raggiungimento degli obiettivi in materia di efficienza energetica.

‘Dei tre obiettivi europei al 2030, il 27% di riduzione dei consumi energetici è quello senz’altro più debole. Si tratta invece di un’area nella quale è possibile conseguire risultati ben più ambiziosi, dell’ordine del 40% con un vantaggio per l’economia del Continente. L’Italia in particolare ha enormi margini di intervento nel settore dell’edilizia, visto che la metà del parco presenta consumi oltre tre volte superiori a quelli di un nuovo edificio’, dichiara Gianni Silvestrini presidente di Free.

In Italia già oggi sono 372.000 le aziende che negli ultimi sette anni hanno investito in tecnologie green per ridurre l’impatto ambientale, risparmiare energia e contenere le emissioni di CO2. Per il 2016, stando ai primi dati, sono 120 mila le imprese che hanno investito nel green, il 36% in più rispetto al 2014.
