caneteMEPs from 13 countries and 4 political groups sent a letter to Commissioner Canete calling for a transformation of the building stock into ‘nearly zero energy buildings’ by 2050 in the EU. “We in the European Parliament call on you to ensure that the revised EPBD proposal includes a clear renovation vision for the existing building stock to bring it to NZEB levels by 2050” said the 23 signatory MEPs. “Time is running out to meet our building renovation ambitions and we risk locking in huge amounts of savings and failing to grasp the numerous health, economic, societal and climate benefits.”
