The building and industry sectors combined represent about 85% of Europe’s CO2 emissions and about 70% of final energy use. Increasing energy efficiency and reducing energy demand is thus a key strategy to reducing carbon emissions from these sectors. Energy efficiency measures typically pay for themselves over time, but nevertheless, businesses often prioritise other types of investments in lieu of energy saving projects.
