The EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) highlights the exemplary role of the public sector, and especially public buildings. The EED recast (adopted in 2023) reinforces these requirements, aiming at transforming existing public buildings in nearly zero-energy or zero-emission buildings, and extending the scope to all public buildings.

This webinar will briefly remind the main changes in the EU context and provide an overview of measures implemented by Member States to improve energy efficiency in public buildings. It will also discuss how these measures can play an exemplary role to trigger energy savings beyond public buildings.

Key messages

  • Energy efficiency in the public sector is one of the main topics of the EED recast
  • Public bodies can have a direct impact on their energy consumption, provided they get appropriate support
