COGEN Europe acknowledges positive mention of Energy Efficiency and of cogeneration in particular in European Parliament draft report

Date: 23 October 2013

The draft European Parliament report on a 2030 framework for climate and energy policies, produced jointly by the ENVI (environment, public health and food safety) and ITRE (industry, research and energy) committees, rightly acknowledges the future role of energy-efficiency policies in the 2030 climate and energy framework but falls short of devising any concrete path towards putting in place this framework.

Regarding cogeneration, the report states that “the European Parliament […] sees an important role for cogeneration in increasing energy efficiency in the future”. It “calls for further support for decentralised and micro-scale energy production and smart energy infrastructures in all Member States”.
