Energy efficiency key facts

  1. By 2030, the European Union (EU) committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40%, increase renewable energy to least 27% and increase energy efficiency at 27%.
  2. Under The SE4All Building Efficiency Accelerator, national and regional governments committed to double the rate of building energy efficiency by 2030.
  3. Action around energy efficiency enhances energy security in Europe.
  4. By 2020, EU needs to achieve: 20% increase in energy efficiency, 20% reduction of CO2 and 20% share of energy renewable sources.
  5. EU Policymakers have mandated that all new public buildings achieve nearly zero energy status by 2018, and that all other new buildings achieve the same status by 2020.
  6. Global primary energy demand projected to increase by 50% between now and 2030.
  7. The EU is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 80-95% below 1990 levels by 2050.
  8. Buildings consume 35% of the world's energy and account for 40% of the world's GHG emissions.
  9. Large scale action on energy efficiency would create market demand for products and services that would result in 2.000.000 of new European jobs.

Innovation in technology, online communications and business models will be at the core of the next roundtable: "Bringing Innovation to Energy Efficiency".

On 30 and 31 March 2015, leading thinkers and influencers will convene in Monaco for roundtables in the context of the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum (EEF).

Hosted by Prince Albert II of Monaco, Johnson Controls, GE Lighting and The Climate Group, the EEF is a flagship event that promotes economy wide improvements in energy efficiency as one of the most effective means to mitigate climate change, reduce environmental degradation and stimulate economic growth simultaneously.

The next and 6th edition of the EEF will take place in 2016. The purpose of this year's roundtable is to maintain the momentum towards the 2016 EEF, and to provide an opportunity for experts and influencers to come together to discuss three inter-connected themes: Technological innovation, Social innovation, Financial and business model innovation.

Following these discussions, delegates will have a chance to consider how these innovations will shape "The Road to Paris", meaning the policy landscape in the lead up to the UN Climate Summit scheduled for December in Paris (COP21).

4th annual Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum discusses important role of energy efficiency for economic growth

Held under the theme "Targeting Efficiency for Economic Recovery" committing to Growth, the forum welcomed more than 170 European policy and decision makers, private, public, and civil society representatives.
The attendees discussed the policies necessary to support greater energy efficiency investments and heard examples of best practices where energy efficiency has spurred economic development in addition to comfort, health, productivity and other benefits.

All greenhouse gas emissions relating to the organisation of the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum will be offset thanks to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s “Monaco Carbon Offsetting” Programme.
