EPEE: EC F-Gas recommendations go too far

The European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE), representing the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump industry in Europe, has claimed the F-Gas report submitted by Bas Eickhout to the European Parliament goes to far in its measures.

In a statement the organisation said: “EPEE has come up with a proposal to reduce F-gas consumption in their sector by 65 per cent in 2030. This proposal  will achieve the EU climate goals. The Rapporteur for the European Parliament now asks for an 84 per cent reduction, which goes far beyond Europe’s objectives and is based on estimates of the development of future technologies. EPEE calls upon decision-makers to strike a balance between ambition and feasibility.”
