IEA Global Conference on Energy Efficiency

The IEA’s third Global Conference on Energy Efficiency will take place in Paris with ministers and high-level government officials, business leaders, financial institutions and civil society gathering from over 40 countries to advance the dialogue on energy efficiency, with a focus on action and delivery of scalable, impactful efficiency policies and programmes.


Proceedings will be informed by the most extensive analysis the IEA has ever conducted on energy efficiency. Energy Efficiency 2018, the latest in the IEA’s energy efficiency market report series, will be released on 19 October. For the first time, it will also feature a World Energy Outlook Efficient World Scenario (EWS), which sheds light on how energy efficiency can reduce global energy demand by 2040 across all key economic sectors while delivering multiple non-energy benefits.
