Between 11 and 15 April 2011, more than 30 000 participants in the UK and 42 other countries will discuss energy efficiency and renewable energy during the EU Sustainable Week 2011. The European Commission is organising core events in Brussels in order to debate on the best use of energy efficiency and renewable energy across Europe and show concrete examples how to increase both. This week will see an announcement on the next steps to deploy smart grids throughout Europe and give consumers more possibilities to control their consumption and save more energy.
Announcing the Week ahead, EU Commissioner for Energy Günther Oettinger said: "When it comes to energy production and consumption, Europe needs more than ever to be on a sustainable path. It is time to invest in higher energy efficiencies and a wider use of renewable sources: this is the best way forward to ensuring safe and competitive energy for us and children. The smart grids and the use of smart meters are key for a better use of energy."
