Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency logo The EU considers energy efficiency as one of the most cost-effective ways to enhance the security of energy supply and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and other pollutants. Improvements in energy efficiency can also reduce the need for investment in energy infrastructure, cut the economy-wide expenditure on fuel, increase competitiveness and improve consumer welfare. Energy efficiency is specifically mentioned in the Lisbon Treaty as one of the four primary objectives of EU energy policy. This combination of benefits has led the European Commission to set a target for a 20% improvement in energy efficiency by 2020.
