EPEE publishes cooling and heating strategy

EPEE has published a position paper of priorities following the European Commission’s forthcoming heat and cooling strategy announcement.

In a statement it said: “EPEE welcomes the announcement by the European Commission to propose an EU Heating & Cooling Strategy by the end of 2015, as a key element of the EU Energy Union framework.

“As heating and cooling forms a major part of Europe’s energy consumption, it makes sense for there to be a strong focus on this sector.

At this stage of the debate, we would like to highlight four aspects that should be taken into consideration when preparing the Strategy and which can contribute to a sustainable and secure energy system in Europe:

1. A holistic approach ensuring the effective use of energy

2. Consumer awareness and investments in energy efficient solutions

3. Enforcing existing EU legislation

4. An equal focus on heating AND cooling”
