Energy Efficiency Actions in ASEAN-Japan-Tokyo (Webinar) - 28.08.207


The Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency is hosting a no-cost webinar series ‘Think globally, act locally’ in order to explore how energy efficiency policies and actions are linked together at the global, national and local levels of decision-making and how potentially local actions can drive policy and market transformation at the higher levels of governance.

Each webinar will start with the global level discussion on the trends and development in the field of energy efficiency followed by the real-life examples from one country and one city on their efforts to improve energy efficiency through policies and projects implementation. 

This webinar will focus on the following topics: 
• Global level: Facilitating energy efficiency uptake 
• Regional level: Energy efficiency trends and challenges in the ASEAN region 
• National level: Success story of energy efficiency policy development in Japan 
• City level: Experiences from Tokyo on energy efficiency actions at the city level
