European Alliance to Save Energy
Tony Robson, Group CEO of Knauf Insulation and Chair of the European Alliance to Save Energy, said :
“a key factor that drives energy efficiency is legislation. Good laws ensure we’re safer, healthier and live better lives. There are 220 million buildings in the European Union today and 160 million are still going to be around in 2050. So, this is a vast energy-efficiency problem that will be inherited by our children and grandchildren unless we introduce deep renovation regulations that ensure these buildings save energy rather than squander it”.
“That’s why tackling wasted energy has to be at the heart of the European Union’s 2030 framework for EU climate change and energy policies. Putting energy efficiency first will achieve climate targets, improve competitiveness, safeguard energy security, create jobs, reduce costs and give people the comforts they deserve,” he said.
