Energy efficiency technologies and materials

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Cooling accounts for 10% of global electricity consumption and demand is expected to triple by 2050. Given this context, innovative technical and financial solutions are required to ensure that cleaner and more efficient cooling solutions are adopted. Cooling as a Service (CaaS) is an innovative financial instrument to overcome key market barriers to clean and efficient cooling, without upfront investment, with integrated financial tools to recapitalise technology providers.

The theme for the 2020 Summer Study is “Efficiency: The Core of a Clean Energy Future.” We chose this theme in recognition of the rapidly evolving ecosystem of the energy industry. From resilience to health, from distributed energy resources to renewables to grid integration and virtual batteries, energy efficiency remains critical to our success. Whatever the surrounding goals for expansion of clean energy systems and services, the ability to design and operate efficient buildings is an essential foundational requirement.
