This year, the European Commission will be providing its recommendations for changes in the 2012 Energy Efficiency Directive following a recent consultation. One of the important articles concerns Member States obligation to prepare long-term renovation strategies.
The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission recently published an analysis about the Member States renovation strategies as required by Article 4 of the Energy Efficiency Directive. The JRC used the scoring methodology developed by BPIE in its 2014 analysis. The report confirms to a large degree analysis from the Buildings Performance Institute Europe and concludes that only ten of the national strategies are fully compliant (Czech Republic, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and the United Kingdom). Six of the strategies are not compliant (Austria, Belgium Flanders, Belgium Wallonia, Bulgaria, Poland, and Portugal).
