Scheuring-Wielgus blunder. “I do not know anything”. In the background there is a law affecting millions of Poles

– I know absolutely nothing about it, nothing – said the new MEP of the Left, Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus. She was asked, among other things: about a very important EU directive that affects millions of Poles.

After Sunday’s elections to the European Parliament, the Left won three seats, which went to Robert Biedroń, Krzysztof Śmiszek and Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus. The newly elected MEP was asked by RMF FM what she knew about the so-called EU Building Directive.

Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus on the Building Directive: I don’t know anything about it

– Oh dear, I don’t know anything about this directive. I don’t know anything at all. I’m saying the truth. I don’t know everything, I admit it – Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus replied to the interviewer Grzegorz Sroczyński, who reminded, among others, MP from the Left that “entire bazaars were talking about the building directive” and Confederation politicians “scared little children with it.”

– Are we talking about one of the Green Deal directives? – the Leftist politician asked and added that we need to return “to the idea of ​​why the Green Deal was created at all.” The MP admitted that she had not heard anything about ETS2, and it “did not reach her” during the campaign. – At that moment I understood why you had 6.3 percent. – commented Grzegorz Sroczyński on RMF FM.

Poles and thermal modernization. Here are the results of the study

that the study “Poles’ attitude towards thermal modernization” commissioned by ING Bank Śląski shows that Poles have low knowledge of the requirements arising from the EU Directive on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD), also known as the “Buildings Directive”. ING BSK conducted a survey on a group of apartment and house owners to check their attitude towards thermal modernization and knowledge about this EU directive. It turns out that 62 percent respondents rate their knowledge about thermal modernization as low, although most of them have already heard this term. Only 3% have heard about the EPDB directive itself. property owners.

The study also shows that 53 percent Poles would like to know more about the Building Directive, 33%. planning thermal modernization, 27 percent rejects it, and 40 percent there is no opinion on this topic yet. Among the negative effects of the Building Directive, more than half of respondents expect an increase in the prices of apartments available on the market (66%) or difficulties in the process of obtaining consent to build a house (52%).

EU Building Directive. What is it about?

– EPBD requirements regarding, among others, the introduction of energy classes of buildings in the coming years or the zero-emission nature of new buildings and the ban on installing stand-alone boilers using fossil fuels from 2030 are expected to lead to improved energy efficiency of buildings. Combined with the implementation of the ETS2 system in buildings and transport from 2027 to 2028, the burning of coal or gas in buildings will be subject to an emission fee, which should encourage thermal modernization investments and switching to more ecological solutions – commented Leszek Kąsek, senior economist at the ING Macroeconomic Analysis Office. BSK. In his opinion, the costs of using apartments or houses using fossil fuels as a heating source will increase in the next 3-5 years.

Let us remind you that in March 2024 . Poland and other EU countries will have to translate the EU directive into national law. New EU regulations require all new buildings to be zero-emission by 2030. This means that a high standard of energy efficiency will be required – there will be no room for heating with fossil fuels such as coal or gas. For public buildings, this requirement will come into force in 2028. Also from 2030, it will be mandatory to install photovoltaic panels on house roofs. However, on one condition: if it is “technically and economically possible.”
