CEIR reiterated its call to the European Parliament to make energy efficiency a reality!
The ongoing review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) must ensure that EU legislation supports energy efficiency for all European citizens.
To deliver such benefits, the revised EPBD should encourage the installation of thermostatic radiator valves and hydronic balancing in new and existing buildings. The systematic use of thermostatic control valves will result in substantial energy savings. Indeed, the systematic replacement of simple valves leads to a reduction of 13%-19% of energy dedicated to heating.
Therefore, CEIR issued voting recommendations (see document below) in view of the vote in the Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) Committee of the European Parliament.
