Energy efficiency technologies have a role to play as much as the fuels themselves on the way towards climate-neutrality.

Already today, energy efficiency solutions successfully complement decarbonisation by delivering important energy savings which result in emission reductions, higher competitiveness for industry and lower energy bills for end consumers. In the future, these technologies have the potential to maximise the use of lower carbon, renewable as well as decarbonised energy sources and to support smart and efficient electrification.

This event will dive deep into the present and future advantages of putting energy efficiency first, with a focus on CHP and its role in improving the carbon footprint of energy-intensive industrial processes.

Our speakers will provide their answers to those key questions: 

  • What does the energy efficiency first principle mean concretely?
  • What are energy efficiency’s benefits in the transition and in a net-zero energy system?
  • Why is energy efficiency worth investing in?
  • What would be an enabling framework for energy efficiency ambitions?

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this event and hearing your voice during the debate!
