The massive energy savings potential of high performing windows remains largely untapped in the European Union.

If properly implemented, the 2018-amended Energy Performance of Buildings Directive could provide the right legislative framework to overcome the remaining barriers which still prevent savings from state-of-the-art windows to be realised.

In a common position paper, the building glass, façade and window industries represented by European AluminiumEuroWindoorES-SO, FAECF and Glass for Europe propose to pursue 3 key objectives to maximise the contribution of windows to ensure a decarbonised building stock by 2050:

  1. Increasing the replacement rate of windows as part of the long-term renovation strategy.
  2. Using the “energy balance” approach to assess the energy performance of windows.
  3. Recognising the benefits of daylight, natural ventilation and solar management.
