Who We Are

Vision and Mission · Members · Board of Directors · Honorary Members · Supporting Organizations · Secretariat

We are innovative European businesses, policy makers, and energy efficiency campaigners.

Our message is simple: The time to create an energy efficient Europe is now!

Vision and Mission

The European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) was established at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP16) in December 2010. Our members and partners include some of Europe’s leading multinational companies, a prominent cross-party group of European politicians and energy efficiency campaigners from across Europe.

Our vision is of a future where energy efficiency and end-users empowerment are central to the EU energy system and are fundamental drivers for job creation, sustainable growth, competitiveness, energy productivity, innovation, energy security and decarbonisation.

At EU-ASE, our mission is to:

  • Serve as the leading European business organization gathering and representing all industrial sectors engaged in energy efficiency;
  • Give visibility and enhance technological and market solutions for energy efficiency whose potential is today not fully exploited, aiming for a doubling of the rate of energy efficiency improvements to at least 3% per year;
  • Strengthen and enforce a well-functioning EU legislative and financial framework for energy efficiency and cost-effective decarbonisation, in line with the Paris agreement;
  • Promote a forward looking political agenda where energy efficiency will facilitate further decarbonisation efforts and the integration of renewable energy sources.
