On 13 October 2022 the European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) will host the first edition of the European Energy Efficiency Day, a high-level policy conference bringing together policymakers, leading industry players and energy experts to explore cost efficient and socially fair decarbonisation paths.
According to the International Energy Agency’s Net Zero by 2050 report, achieving climate neutrality by 2050 requires to pushing the average average rate of energy efficiency improvements in the period 2020-2030 to about three times that he average of the last two decades. The importance of energy efficiency is even more evident in the current context of high energy prices and to significantly reduce the EU’s dependence on Russian fossil fuels as soon as possible.
Improving energy efficiency throughout the EU can be done through massively scaling up energy efficient solutions for buildings, vehicles, home appliances and industry. Solutions and technologies which are all available today.
In this context, the European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) has felt the need to launch a new forum to discuss the future of energy and how to decarbonise Europe’s economy through the lenses of energy efficiency, innovation and long-term sustainability.
The European Energy Efficiency Day is a high-level policy conference aimed at exploring cost efficient and socially fair decarbonisation paths to address the energy and climate crisis and deliver the European Green Deal.
Through a series of six sessions throughout the day, the event will bring together key EU and national policymakers, leading industry players, as well as experts from the energy and environment community.
The first edition of the European Energy Efficiency Day will take place on 13 October 2022 as an online event.
