On November 30, 2016, the European Commission (EC) released important pieces of proposed legislative amendments in the form of the “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package. It covers energy efficiency, renewable energy, the electricity market regulations as well as consumers and governance rules for the Energy Union. The proposed changes refer, inter alia, to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED).

 

To initiate the debate in Poland on how these changes affect the building sector in particular, BPIE organised a workshop, held in Warsaw on March 20, 2017, inviting key stakeholders and interested parties to discuss BPIE’s proposed amendments and to garner feedback from those engaged in the sector in Poland. The workshop was attended by 37 representatives of public administration, business, non-governmental organizations, media, research and finance (see list in the Annex section). The result of the joint work is presented in this document with key messages.

 

By publishing the conclusions of the workshop, BPIE hopes that the collective views of key Polish stakeholders will help the further work on the Package and contribute to a better understanding of the Polish needs in this area.

 

The policy paper is available in English and in Polish.
