MEPs calls for the Commission to drive energy efficiency by making it a European energy infrastructure priority

A report spearheaded by German MEP, Markus Pieper has called for the European Commission to bring out a 40% cut in energy demand by 2030. This report, adopted by the Parliament this week, importantly calls upon the Commission to make energy efficiency a European infrastructure priority as recognised by the IMF and other economic bodies.

Reacting to this positive step, Sarah Kostense-Winterton, MIMA’s Executive Director commented, “It has long been recognised that investment in the fabric of buildings and in their energy efficiency has a positive effect on economic growth by increasing productivity and attracting investment, as well as providing public goods and boosting employment in the construction and other sectors. This is an ambitious, but important step but MIMA will be ready to support the EU institutions in achieving this goal and ensure that energy efficiency delivers for consumers, improves their homes and keeps our communities energy secure across the EU.
