WindEurope feedback on the roadmap & inception impact assessment on the revision of the Energy Efficiency Directive
Decarbonising the economy and reaching carbon neutrality by 2050 require reducing resources demand – through energy efficiency, circular economy, or lifestyle/behaviour changes as well as technology options to decarbonise the energy supply – like fuel-switching, renewable energy sources.
To this end, WindEurope calls for the roadmap and the inception impact assessment of the European Commission on the Energy Efficiency Directive revision to:
- Be aligned with the European Green Deal and the EU Recovery Plan and to recognise the role of renewable electricity in the decarbonisation process; and
- Revise the value of the Primary Energy Factor to trigger the use of electricity where and when it is most efficient option.
