Join the first edition of the European Energy Efficiency Day on 13 October 2022

 This high-level event will bring together leading businesses, policymakers and energy experts to discuss how to achieve an energy efficient and future-proof Europe.

Increasing the level of energy savings across the European Union is crucial to deliver the clean energy transition. It is even more urgent in the current context of rising energy prices and to phase out as quickly as possible the EU’s reliance on Russian fossil fuels.

In this context, the European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) is launching the “European Energy Efficiency Day”: 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.

Through six thematic sessions, the event will bring together key policymakers, business players, as well as experts from the energy and environment community.

The first edition of #EEDayEU will take place on 13 October 2022 (online). Register now

According to the International Energy Agency’s Net Zero by 2050 report, achieving climate neutrality by 2050 requires pushing the average rate of energy efficiency improvements in the period 2020-2030 to about three times the average of the last two decades. This can be done through massively scaling up energy-efficient solutions for buildings, vehicles, home appliances and industry. Energy-efficient solutions which are all available today.
