Revisione della Direttiva 2012/27/EU su efficienza energetica, il contributo di EF
Review of the Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency, 21th Septermber 2020
Elettricità Futura welcomes the European Commission initiative evaluating the possible revision of the Energy Efficiency Directive. The revision of the Directive is an important opportunity to further expand the energy efficiency benefits, as the “Energy Efficiency First” principle constitutes one of the main pillars of the EU’s fight against climate change and a successful and sustainable energy transition, in order to create a common framework. Among the policy options presented by the inception impact assessment, Elettricità Futura supports Option 3 (revision of the EED) combined with Option 2 (non-regulatory measures). Elettricità Futura supports the Commission’s proposal of an increased EU decarbonization ambition by 2030 to reduce GHG emissions at least 50% and towards 55% compared to 1990 levels in a responsible way, and to reach climate neutrality in the EU by 2050. Upscaling climate action through the energy transition will deliver substantial benefits in terms of economic and resource efficiency, reduction of global and local pollution, resilience to economic, technological and environmental change. In this context, energy efficiency is one of the most cost-effective ways of addressing the EU’s strategic policy objectives of carbon neutrality by 2050, ensuring security of supply and enhancing competitiveness. Energy efficiency has become a structural trend, accelerated by ambitious policy targets, which place the "energy efficiency first” principle in the center of the energy policy in Europe.
