Accelerating investment into climate adaptation and sustainable energy are important to ensure a clean energy transition and helping the EU to meet its climate and energy targets for 2020 and 2030. This will bring significant benefits for all European citizens and companies in terms of jobs and sustainable growth, lower energy bills, health and security of energy supply as well as greater resilience of cities to a constantly changing climate.
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.
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.
