We are innovative European businesses,
policy makers, and energy efficiency campaigners
The European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) is a cross-sectorial multi-stakeholder business-led alliance promoting the role of energy efficiency across the whole EU energy system, from generation and local production to end use. The membership of EU-ASE brings together businesses and thought leaders, with a cross-party group of members of the European Parliament.
Since its foundation in 2010, the Alliance has helped put energy efficiency high on the agenda of EU decision makers. Together with other Brussels-based and national stakeholders it has developed and promoted the Energy Efficiency First (EE1) principle, which is now a concept introduced in the European legislative framework .
Because of the strength and number of EU-ASE members we:
- Represent industry and thought leaders central to the energy efficiency campaign. Our members are all well-known and respected brands and NGOs, whose importance goes far beyond their individual sectors.
- Address policy and regulatory affairs with ambitious and well-developed positions, and intervene swiftly in the energy transition debate.
- Are able to reach out and develop partnerships with high-level politicians, policy makers and stakeholders, at EU, national and local levels, including cities.
In the context of the energy crisis and price hikes exacerbated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Alliance threw its weight behind demonstrating to EU decision makers that existing energy efficiency solutions are key to address the energy crisis and reach climate neutrality globally.
