This week, Glass for Europe was at ECEEE Summer Study, the biennial, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral conference which gathers energy efficiency professionals from all over the world.
On Wednesday, during the panel session dedicated to “Building policies and programmes (Policy approaches for energy efficiency and EnR in existing buildings”, Cedric Janssens presented the paper Contribution of energy efficient glazing to Paris objective in different EU building renovation scenarios. The paper is based on the outcome of the recent report commissioned by Glass for Europe to TNO (TNO 2019) and illustrates the impact of window renovation rates on the energy savings and CO2 emissions reduction in the EU building stock.
#DYK that the average performance of glazing installed in the #EU is equivalent to windows of 1960’s ? 😯#eceee2019 #TimeToAct 🏠🏢👷🏻♀️#EfficiencyFirst

We have a BIG potential in replacement of windows in Europe. The average Energy Performance is 3 times worth as good new windows We can save 29% of the energy for heating of buildings and 94.230.000 Tons of CO2.
