A successful energy efficiency approach in Europe

As one of the five pillars of the Energy Union Strategy, energy efficiency is a key enabler of an ambitious and cost-efficient transition to a low-carbon economy.

The Energy Efficiency Directive (2012) established a comprehensive EU framework, driving the reduction of energy demand in all Member States. However, the current framework remains too complex and fragmented, and needs to be readjusted in order to deliver its full benefits at the least cost.

As the European Commission is currently reviewing the Directive, this event aims to identify and debate the most promising opportunities for a successful approach at the EU level.

At the front line of energy efficiency investments, experts from residential and tertiary buildings, ESCO and financing platforms will gather on the same podium to discuss the way forward and pave the way for the uptake of a strong, dynamic and competitive European industry for energy efficiency services.

Join us on 21 June for a comprehensive high-level debate!
