Bertrand Cazes, Secretary General of Glass for Europe gave the association’s reaction to the EU Council General approach on the Energy Efficiency Directive and Energy Performance of Building Directive.
Bertrand Cazes, Secretary General of Glass for Europe: "The lack of ambition in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and the absence of legislative response to the well-known loopholes of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) in the Council's general approach are sources of great disappointment for the building glass sector.”
“It is sad news to give to the building glass experts gathered at the Glass Performance Days conference, precisely to exchange on continuous improvements in glass' energy efficiency, safety and comfort properties.”
“To Glass for Europe, a high ambition in buildings must not be feared. It could be met with readily available glass products if the EPBD review was to address the directive's deficiencies."
