In order to implement the agreement on global warming reached at the UN climate change conference in Paris, in December 2015, an almost complete phasing out of fossil energy supply is required by 2050. This presents enormous challenges for the society, but also offers a lot of opportunities for research and industry to make a global contribution to this change.
At this event, ACEEE will release its biennial International Scorecard, which examines the energy efficiency policies and performance of the world’s 25 largest energy-consuming countries. The scorecard evaluates countries based on 35 metrics and shows how all can substantially improve their energy efficiency. It has attracted considerable media attention, including Clean Technica and USA TODAY, and this workshop will broaden its reach, and this workshop will broaden its reach.
The aim of the C4E Forum is to build and strengthen Central and Eastern Europe’s energy efficiency community. With so many interesting efficiency projects, policies and programmes happening in the region, our community needs a dedicated platform for sharing and learning together. The event will welcome a great mix of participants from governments, the public sector, NGOs, civic societies and businesses.
The first eceee industrial energy efficiency event was held in 2012, following a 20-year tradition of interdisciplinary, cross-sector Summer Studies, which has developed into the most important energy efficiency event in Europe. In 2014 and 2016, follow up events were organised.
The European Commission, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Energy, Greece, and the UN Environment Finance Initiative, is organising a regional Conference on Financing Energy Efficiency in Greece and Cyprus.
