The New Directive has a lot of potential to get this process underway and to support local energy transitions. CECODHAS Housing Europe is focusing on what it sees as three main catalysts which will be vital for our success:
1) achieving the optimal energy mix of efficiency, renewables and capture of waste heat BEFORE we invest in macro grids,
2) Citizen engagement and empowerment through ICT but much more besides
3) access to capital at the right rates and under conditions that mean transitions are not exclusive but all- inclusive.

Marie Donnelly, who is now in charge of the directorate responsible for - New and Renewable Sources of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Innovation at DG ENER recently outlined a couple of the blocking points when it comes to energy efficiency – They included the fact that although everyone agrees that energy efficiency is a good idea, there is no denying the fact that You Have to Spend to Save! and that the Financial Sector, with some exceptions, is not yet buying in to its full potential to the Energy Efficiency Agenda.
