EU Commissioner responsible for jobs, growth, investment and competitiveness Jyrki Katainen said on Tuesday that the EU will not allocate specific funds from the Juncker plan to pay for renovation projects to boost the energy efficiency of buildings. Katainen added that it was up to the private sector to choose which projects get the cash.

“Energy efficiency is one of the Commission’s key priorities,” Katainen said, “and that’s why I expect there will be energy efficiency projects but it’s up to private sector to apply or establish those projects.”
