On 21 June, EHI and other seven associations sent a joint letter to EU Member States’ representatives ahead of 22 June COREPER meeting, expected to discuss the review of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and lay the ground for a general approach, to be possibly adopted by energy ministers by the end of the month.

The letter calls for the full recognition of energy savings coming from efficient and future-proof technologies under the EED annual energy savings obligation. In particular, it highlights the importance of technologies compatible with renewable and climate-neutral alternative fuels to achieve higher energy efficiency and a swift decarbonisation within heating and buildings, alongside increasing electrification via heat pumps and hybrids.
