Strong impetus to energy savings and energy efficiency Offentliggjort den: 23/06/2011
The cheapest energy is the one we do not consume. The counting down has started to achieve Europe's 20% energy efficiency target for 2020. If nothing changes in the coming years, the EU will achieve only half of the target. This threatens our competitiveness, our fight to reduce CO2 emissions and our security of supply. This is still a high cost for every consumer's bill. A new set of measures for increased Energy Efficiency has been proposed on 22 June by the European Commission to fill the gap and put back the EU on track.
