Accelerating and supporting upfront financial investments in energy efficiency

Accelerating and supporting upfront financial investments in energy efficiency

Question

Energy efficiency is one of the key pillars of the EU’s energy and climate strategy for 2030. Although the EU has made significant progress towards achieving the 2020 energy efficiency target and as regards energy-saving methods for households, transport systems and infrastructure, there is still a strong need to fully unlock potential and trigger investments geared at improving energy efficiency which make economic, social and environmental sense. At the same time, there is also a need to accelerate and support upfront financial investments in energy efficiency for households, microenterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises. Therefore, could the Commission answer the following:

1. What level of investment does the Commission estimate to be necessary at EU level in order to reach the 2020 and 2030 targets?
2. What financial instruments is the Commission planning to propose so as to take into account the need to support low-income families and social housing projects?
