“Fit-for-55: decade of action”
The climate package under the European Green Deal – Fit-for-55, refers to the EU target of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. The proposed package aims to align EU legislation with the 2030 target and ensure a coherent and balanced framework for achieving the EU’s climate goals. In his speech, the author will provide an overview of European initiatives, going beyond the Fit-for-55 package, which will shape the next decade of using ETICS in Europe. He will discuss topics related to the strategies proposed by the European Commission, including Renovation Wave, NextGenerationEU, RePowerEU, and proposed changes to the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and the Energy Efficiency of Buildings Directive (EPBD). The author will also discuss the current challenges related to the circular economy.
