A NEW REALITY eceee 2021 Summer Study

Share this Post:

Since the 1970s, energy efficiency has contributed more to our economic prosperity than any other single source of energy supply. This is the power of a million small, and often invisible, actions. eceee makes these actions visible!


Eceee, the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, is a membership-based non-profit association. eceee generates and provide evidence-based knowledge and analysis of policies, and facilitates co-operation and networking through Summer Studies, workshops, and social media!


Digital event 7–11 June 2021  #eceee2021


“We are facing a new reality. There is an increasingly urgent climate crisis, and we simply can’t go back to business as usual after the pandemic. The restart after Covid-19 offers a golden opportunity to do things smarter, greener and fairer for all. Energy efficiency and energy sufficiency are part of the solution when we fundamentally rethink how we travel, live, meet and work. Join us for eceee’s 2021 digital Summer Study in June to discuss these crucial issues. We did it in September with Industrial Efficiency and we will do it again.”

  • Panel 8. Buildings: technologies and systems beyond energy efficiency
  • Panel 9. Products, appliances, ICT

“Will we ever meet in person again?


We miss the physical event, but we had to go digital in 2021. That said, we also believe in meeting face to face. After all, the human interaction of our events is unparalleled and we are already planning for a face-to-face event, possibly as early as 2022. We are committed to creating a physical event that fits into your carbon-constrained travel and event budget of the future. We pledge to make our Summer Study one of the must-attend events and we will use the 2021 digital event as an opportunity to explore how.


We understand that the theme of this year’s event is not just words. We are indeed facing A new reality.”
