EUROPIA Position Paper on the proposed Directive on Energy Efficiency

Posted on 01/10/2011 in Position Paper

EUROPIA welcomes the EU efforts to encourage energy efficiency in the EU, particularly in end use. The efficient use of energy is vital due to the increasing world energy demand, assessed to grow by 30-40% over the next 20 years. Better energy efficiency will help to conserve resources, to improve international competitiveness, and to reduce the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions.
