Joint Statement from the Electrical and Mechanical installation sectors on the recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

GCP Europe, the leading representative of mechanical installers in Europe, and EuropeOn, the European voice of the electrical contracting industry, welcome the European Commission’s proposal for the recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).

The proposed amendments are a natural development of the legislative act, reacting to the ever- growing importance of energy efficient, clean and smart buildings to achieve the EU’s climate and energy objectives

As mentioned in Recital 56 (in force EPBD), contractors have a “critical” role to play in the decarbonisation of buildings thanks to their in-depth knowledge of the installation, maintenance and inspection of electric, heating, cooling, and ventilation systems.

We have released this joint statement from the entire installation sector to give a voice to the critical professionals making the energy transition happen on the ground.
