Energy poverty is broadly understood as the inability of households to afford basic energy services to guarantee a decent standard of living. Under Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), EU countries must set up an energy efficiency obligation scheme that requires energy companies to achieve yearly energy savings of 1.5% of annual sales to final consumers.

It can rapidly create large amounts of jobs and involves far-reaching value chains of small and large businesses. In 2015, the sector accounted for 11-13% of global GDP. It is indeed a major employer: 7% of total global employment or 220 million jobs depend on it. Globally, USD 4.5 trillion were spent on construction and renovation of buildings in 2018.

As businesses and investors having energy efficiency and energy demand reduction at the heart of our activities, we look forward to seeing Europe’s global climate leadership translated in green measures which will lead to a sustainable recovery through stimulus packages. We strongly believe that the Renovation Wave as part of the EU Green Deal is a great opportunity to promote a European based industry, with technologies and expertise able to serve the renovation demand locally.
