Energy efficiency measures are increasingly recognised as valuable means to achieve a sustainable energy supply. Furthermore, they reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve security of supply, cut households’ bills, and even promote competitiveness.
In 2016, the International Energy Agency (IEA) claimed that “energy efficiency is the one energy resource all countries possess”. It highlighted that global energy intensity improved by in 2015, three times the average rate of improvement between 2003 and 2013, even as oil prices plunged by as much as 60% since mid-2014. At the EU level, energy efficiency is now perceived as a high priority, and measures are being taken to focus on sectors in which the potential for savings is greatest.
This symposium will provide a timely and invaluable opportunity to engage with the latest developments in the EU legislative framework on energy efficiency. It will also enable attendees to examine the societal factors that drive energy consumption, the latest technological innovation that will bring about further efficiency gains and the best solutions to finance energy efficiency projects. The symposium will also offer delegates a platform to share ideas and best practice from across Europe.
