How can energy management contribute to the EU's energy efficiency targets? - Progress and challenges

This workshop presents the scale of the highly cost-effective energy savings that can be obtained from broader and more effective adoption of energy management (EM) across the EU, followed by an open discussion with representatives of the industry and the Commission, on how current EU policy instruments (such as the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the Energy Efficiency Directive) could evolve to become more supportive of unlocking these large-scale savings.

Speakers and panelists include experts from the industry, the European Commission, and other stakeholders.

The current levels of adoption of EM in the EU and the potential scale of energy savings will be presented. A practicing energy manager is invited for a reality check and the European Commission will share their views as well. During an interactive roundtable discussion with leading experts and stakeholders we will consider the drivers and barriers to greater adoption of EM and explore potential solutions.
