EC consultations on investments in energy efficiency
Τhe European Commission has launched 2 new calls for evidence relating to investment for energy efficiency. The first is on assessing the level of EU & national funding for energy efficiency and will feed into a report from the Commission by the end of 2024 on the concept of an EU mechanism for facilitating investment – leading to a legislative proposal, if deemed appropriate. The second is a call for evidence on how to increase private investment in energy efficiency to meet the new EU targets for 2030.
The contributions will help inform the Commission’s preparation of a “Guidance” document to EU countries and market actors on “unlocking private investment in energy efficiency”, due for publication by the end of 2024. Both exercises are linked to Article 30 of the recently adopted recast Energy Efficiency Directive EU/2023/1791 and aim to address the apparent gap between forecast investment and investment requirements linked to achieving the EU targets.
Both calls for evidence are open until 26 February.
