ITRE Committee votes on the Energy Efficiency Directive tomorrow

On 28 February 2012, the ITRE Committee of the European Parliament plans to adopt its negotiating mandates on several relevant dossiers within its remit, including the proposal on the Energy Efficiency Directive (rapporteur: Claude TURMES (Verts/ALE, LU)).


On this occasion, Energy Cities would like to remind its opinion and amendments on the European Commission’s proposal for the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), as published in its related position paper last October.

If Europe really wants to meet its 20% energy efficiency objective by 2020, an ambitious Energy Efficiency Directive has to be adopted by ITRE. Once adopted, we will see wether the proposed EED has been amended and strengthened by:

  • Introducing binding targets for Member States;
  • Imposing binding measures without any exemptions upon all stakeholders;
  • Including the transport sector as it accounts for a third of final energy consumption;
  • Setting out (earmarking) the relevant financial facilities for its implementation.

The ITRE Committee of the European Parliament is responsible for Industry, Research and Energy issues.

On 22 June 2011, the European Commission published its proposal for an Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), which repeals the Cogeneration Directive (2004/8/EC) and the Energy Services Directive (2006/32/EC).

Energy Cities, the European Association of local authorities inventing their energy future, welcomes and recognises the priority given by the European Commission, the European Council and the European Parliament to saving energy and using energy more efficiently.
