The European Commission has identified the construction sites and transport as a priority sector in the field of energy efficiency in the EU, which implies a significant increase in demand for energy-saving double glazing in the EU.European Commission highlighted as priority areas and transport, as those sectors where energy efficiency and should be implemented.
According to the trade association Glass for Europe (Glass for Europe), it is positive news for the flat glass industry, because today she has readily available solutions in the field of energy saving for these two sectors. These two sectors can deliver significant energy savings through the installation of energy-saving glass.
Kase Bertrand (Bertrand Cazes), Secretary General of the Association of Glass for Europe, said that a clear policy, which is set by the European Commission, is most encouraging for the industry of glass and glazing, as the building and transport are priority sectors in which a significant increase in energy efficiency should be obtained.
Targeted EU action in the field of energy efficiency and decarbonization can be easily implemented at the expense of innovation in the glass industry, which already has energy-efficient solutions in the area of??glazing, ready for use in these two sectors.
The European Commission also noted that its European fund strategic investments (European Fund for Strategic Investment) removes the possibility of large-scale investment in the reconstruction of buildings, which implies an increase in demand for energy-saving double glazing in the EU. In addition, a new initiative of the EC suggests increased requirements to all producers of components for the translucent constructions.
