"By improving individual energy performance, each of us is acting for the planet, whilst continuing to maintain our comforts and safeguarding our finances. We should not forget that this creates economic momentum, which for once, does not recklessly consume our natural resources, but preserves them."
HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco
If You look for: "Immediate Actions to reduce Air Pollutions and Climate Troubles", "Safer Energy Supplies, including Renewable", "Sustainable Development of all Countries" ,, then think about Energy Efficiency, and participate in the Monaco EEForum 2011, to build up a smarter future.
Serge de Gheldere:
"It is time to reframe the climate debate - away from idealism or altruism and towards business intelligence."
"Energy efficiency is carbon efficiency, being the first and most important step on the way towards a low carbon society. Energy efficiency is also sustainability at it 's best, creating potential large savings on energy costs, being a competitive advantage for the businesses and cooperation's investing."
"Smart companies and countries have long realised the benefits of prioritising energy efficiency investments. With the triple challenge of increasing energy costs, supply concerns and climate protection, there has never been a better time to step up the drive to greater efficiency.
The smarter countries and companies will ensure energy efficiency initiatives represent commitments for the long term. It is only through such longer term approaches that we can deliver the full benefits of efficiency programs to the societies we all serve."
"The link between Energy and Climate Change is a masterpiece in the Euro-Mediterranean relations that open a window of opportunity towards sustainable development and low carbon emissions growth. Exploiting the full potential of the Mediterranean region in regard to green energy will contribute to further strengthen the economic bridges and to make progress in fulfilling global challenges."
Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum > About the Forum
The Energy Efficiency Forum (EEF) is an event that promotes an energy efficiency ethic through the presentation of national and worldwide views on energy efficiency and the resulting impact on the environment, national security and economic growth. Johnson Controls organized the first Energy Efficiency Forum in the US in 1990. Meanwhile, the same concept was developed in 2008 in Asia and in 2010 in Europe.
The 2010 edition of Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum was the first joint initiative of an alliance formed between Johnson Controls and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in July 2009. In 2010, this alliance grew and we formally engaged The Climate Group as the 3rd partner .
In 2014 we welcome GE lighting as sponsor.
As a high-level, invitation-only annual gathering, the Forum sets out be the first event in Europe that promotes an energy efficiency ethic to drive action in the region. Policy-makers, NGOs and business leaders are encouraged to participate in an open dialogue that expresses national and worldwide views on energy efficiency and the resulting impact on the environment, health and economic growth. With the emphasis on efficient use of our energy resources, the Forum helps:
