Energy in Demand


Agence de L'Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l'Energie, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency. ADEME’s mission is to encourage, supervise, coordinate, facilitate, and undertake operations with the aim of protecting the environment and managing energy. It’s priority areas are energy, air, noise, transport, waste, polluted soil and sites, and environmental management.

CLASP. An independent, non-profit organisation, CLASP improves the environmental and energy performance of the appliances and related systems we use every day, lessening their impacts on people and the world around us. CLASP develops and shares practical and transformative policy and market solutions in collaboration with global experts and local stakeholders. We are the leading international resource and voice for energy efficiency standards and labels (S&L) for appliances, lighting, and equipment. Since 1999, CLASP has worked in over 50 countries on 6 continents pursuing every aspect of appliance energy efficiency, from helping structure new policies to evaluating existing programmes.

CREDS (the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions), is a research centre established in 2018 with a vision to make the UK a leader in understanding the changes in energy demand needed for the transition to a secure and affordable, low-carbon energy system.

Working with researchers, businesses and policy makers, our work addresses a broad range of issues. New research questions in the areas of technology, business models, social change and governance, and in their interaction, are needed. Our vision is for research in the UK to rise to the challenge of transforming the energy demand sector.

ENGIE structures its activities around electricity, natural gas and energy services. ENGIE is a very different group today than it was three years ago. Since 2016, we have repositioned ourselves to become a leader in the energy transition. And we have succeeded in this transformation. We have turned around our profit trajectory and, between 2012 and 2018, we have more than halved our CO2 emissions. We were able to put ourselves at the forefront of the first wave of energy transition.

Established in 1992, the Energy Saving Trust (EST) is the UK’s leading independent organisation helping people save energy and reduce carbon emissions. EST provides expert insight and knowledge about energy saving, supporting people to take action, helping local authorities, communities and businesses to save energy and providing quality assurance for goods, services and installers. EST has significant experience of managing sustainable energy related programmes providing advice, technical support and grants for individual consumers, communities, industry sectors, local authorities, housing associations, academia, business and government.

EST currently holds the Presidency of the European Energy Network (EnR). EnR is a voluntary network of twenty-five national energy agencies from EU Member States and neighbour countries, all of whom support their governments to transform energy markets and mitigate against the risks of climate change. This is done by undertaking research and development, piloting innovative approaches and designing and implementing policy and other market measures that drive the uptake of energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean transport.

Eurima is the European Insulation Manufacturers Association and represents the interests of all major mineral wool producers throughout Europe. Eurima members manufacture a wide range of mineral wool products for the thermal and acoustic insulation and fire protection of domestic and commercial buildings and industrial facilities.

the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings, was formed in 1998 by twenty of Europe's leading companies involved with the manufacture, distribution and installation of a variety of energy saving goods and services. The EuroACE member companies together employ 172,000 people and have a turnover of 140 billion euro. EuroACE works together with the European Institutions to help Europe move towards a more sustainable pattern of energy use in buildings, thereby contributing to the EU's commitments on carbon emissons reductions, job creation and energy security.

The European Copper Institute (ECI) was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Brussels, with additional colleagues based in offices across Europe.

Our mission is to contribute to growing the copper market by building a positive and sustainable future for the industry through promoting and defending the use of copper. We do this by engaging both on regulatory matters and via market development programs, working in close cooperation with our members, who represent the whole copper value chain (copper producers, smelters, recyclers and fabricators).

ECI is also part of the Copper Alliance, which brings together the global copper industry to develop and defend markets for copper, and to make a positive contribution to society’s sustainable development goals.

Glass for Europe is the trade association for Europe’s flat glass sector. Flat glass is the material that goes into a variety of end products, primarily in windows and facades for buildings, windscreens and windows for automotive and transport as well as solar energy equipment, furniture and appliances. Glass for Europe brings together multinational firms and thousands of SMEs across Europe, to represent the whole building glass value-chain. It is composed of flat glass manufacturers, AGC Glass Europe, Guardian, NSG-Group, Saint-Gobain Glass and Siseçam-Trakya Cam, and works in association with national partners gathering thousands of building glass processors and transformers all over Europe.

KR Foundation was established on 21 December 2014 by VILLUM FONDEN and the descendants of civil engineer Villum Kann Rasmussen. The foundation is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, but works internationally. We collaborate closely with The Velux Foundations and the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation.

Renovate Europe is a political communications campaign with the ambition to reduce the energy demand of the building stock in the EU by 80% by 2050 compared to 2005 levels through legislation and ambitious renovation programmes. This will bring the energy performance of the entire building stock in the EU to a Nearly Zero Energy (NZEB) performance level.   Renovate Europe brings together 36 partners from across the building value chain (trade associations, companies, trade unions, city networks and 14 national partners).

The Rockwool Group is the world's leading producer of stone wool – a material that improves the quality of life for millions of people and helps to alleviate environmental problems, such as the greenhouse effect, smog and acid rain. Rockwool insulation gives us pleasant indoor environments by keeping out the freezing cold. In hot climates, stone wool helps to keep indoor temperatures comfortably cool.

Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions which are key ingredients in the wellbeing of each of us and the future of all. They can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications. They provide comfort, performance and safety while addressing the challenges of sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change. Saint-Gobain operates in 67 countries and employs more than 170,000 employees. 

The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) carries out world-class research into sustainable future energy systems. UKERC acts a focal point for UK energy research and a gateway between the UK and the international energy research communities. Our interdisciplinary, whole systems research informs UK policy development and strategies of public, private and third sector organisations.
