As a member of European ceramic industry association Cerame-Unie, TBE's messages were conveyed in the response to the public consultations on the post 2020 Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) revision.
The ceramic industry stated: “There shall be no overlap between the different instruments to reach targets of the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework. The EED and ETS Directive should not interfere with one another, not to create over-excessive burdens for industry. (...) Sectors under the scope of EU ETS should not be subjected to requirements under the EED”.
The EED is to be reviewed within the framework of Energy Union and a legislative proposal is expected to be presented by the European Commission in the second half of 2016. Cerame-Unie's reply can be read here.
