Climate change is no longer a theory in dispute: it will affect all of us. The energy systems in place in our societies are not sustainable – from the supply system to the smallest end-use gadget. There is room for improvement throughout. But any road towards a low carbon society will fail unless we apply the simple message – energy efficiency first!
While improving energy efficiency addresses many of these energy-related challenges, it is not enough. We must reduce our overall energy demand. We must better understand how we use energy and how we can change the ways we use energy on a national, regional and global scale.
The 10th eceee Summer Study will provide policymakers, researchers, activists and professionals with evidence-based knowledge and the most recent insights in energy efficiency thinking and practices. Come and learn what works and who delivers.
The Summer Study offers an opportunity for participants to work together to develop a new way forward. The collective experience embodied in this major European energy forum is a valuable guide for all those who strive to help decision-makers stop talking about saving energy and start delivering sustainable savings.
