Will you shape the energy efficiency policies of tomorrow?
The 2015 Paris climate change agreement has set a long-term goal of keeping the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and the aim to limit the increase to 1.5°C. Energy efficiency is a key mitigation instrument. But efficiency alone will not be sufficient to reach this goal. We also need to look beyond efficiency improvements towards how we can reduce absolute energy demand?
Beyond lowering energy intensity, increasing productivity and optimising resource use, what are the critical elements and foundations of a sustainable society that addresses sufficiency and limits? This year’s Summer Study theme – Consumption, efficiency & limits – explores these themes.
Held for the first time in 1993, the Summer Study now gathers 450 energy efficiency professionals for five full days. The setting is informal and the vision is shared: to explore and expand the evidence and intricacies of energy efficiency to increase our understanding and knowledge base.
Will you contribute?
These are exciting times! You can take part in defining how to implement energy efficiency in the context of the Paris climate agreement and the EU’s 2030 energy and climate policy agenda.
