Vision and Mission
The European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) was established at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP16) in December 2010. Our members and partners include some of Europe’s leading multinational companies, a prominent cross-party group of European politicians and energy efficiency campaigners from across Europe.
The vision is of a future where energy efficiency and end-users empowerment are central to the EU energy system and are fundamental drivers for job creation, sustainable growth, competitiveness, energy productivity, innovation, energy security and decarbonisation.
At EU-ASE, the mission is to:
- Serve as the leading European business organization gathering and representing all industrial sectors engaged in energy efficiency;
- Give visibility and enhance technological and market solutions for energy efficiency whose potential is today not fully exploited, aiming for a doubling of the rate of energy efficiency improvements to at least 3% per year;
- Strengthen and enforce a well-functioning EU legislative and financial framework for energy efficiency and cost-effective decarbonisation, in line with the Paris agreement;
- Promote a forward looking political agenda where energy efficiency will facilitate further decarbonisation efforts and the integration of renewable energy sources.
