Unlocking the potential of energy efficiency for industry

In February 2016, the Commission adopted an EU heating and cooling Strategy, which was the first step in energy policy to explore the energy saving potential of specific processes of this sector. One of the actions foreseen in the Strategy was the setting up of sectoral roundtables with the industry to identify common barriers and to share best practice on energy efficiency and renewable energy. The results of the industrial sectoral round tables can then be used as considerations for future developments and integrated into EU R&D initiatives.

The session presents policy priorities and joint work at EU level on energy efficiency, as well as specific examples on overcoming some of the barriers. Representatives from various industries present their solutions to unlock the potential and the key success factors.

During this session, Industrial Roundtables for Energy Efficiency are launched.
