LightingEurope participated in the first stakeholder meeting on the targeted revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, organised by the European Commission.
LightingEurope strongly supports the call for scaling up renovation rates across Europe. With 97% of EU buildings in need of renovation, this represents a unique opportunity to not only ensure the energy efficiency of buildings but also to address the safety and well-being of occupants through a better indoor environmental quality, both of which lighting contributes to.
LightingEurope submitted our feedback to the Inception Impact Assessment and will contribute to the public consultation. LightingEurope will continue engaging with stakeholders and policymakers. There cannot, and should not be any renovation without an upgrade of the lighting installations.
