Instead of high lightening single measures and technologies, EAE, the European Association for External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS), calls for keeping the holistic approach as foreseen in the proposed Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) revision. Both, energy efficiency and renewable energy need to play their roles. Therefore, it is urgently needed to implement and foster already existing legislation (including proposed EED and EPBD revisions), align it accordingly with European and national funding, and to support technical solutions equally.
Building owners, architects, designers, energy-efficiency consultants, construction companies and industry require reliable framework conditions to prepare and to initiate investment decisions in long-term assets such as buildings. Only then building-individual renovation roadmaps make sense and will help unleashing the full potential of the Renovation Wave.
