According to the International Energy Agency’s Net Zero by 2050 report, achieving climate neutrality by 2050 requires to push the average rate of energy efficiency improvements in the period 2020-2030 to about three times the average of the last two decades. This can be done through massively scaling up energy efficient solutions for buildings, vehicles, home appliances and industry. Energy efficient solutions which are all available today.

In this context, the first edition of European Energy Efficiency Day took place on 13 October 2022. This high-level conference brought together leading policymakers, business players, civil society organisations and energy experts. We succeeded in our goal to create a new, unique platform to explore cost efficient and socially fair decarbonisation solutions and increasing awareness on energy savings as the way forward to achieve the EU Green Deal.

#EEDayEU 2022 brought together 30 speakers, including key EU and national policymakers, leading industry players, as well as experts from the energy and environment community. The event was attended by over 300 online participants.
