Key Information related to energy efficiency

Faced with great energy challenges relating to competitiveness, climate change and security of energy supply, Europe has launched several initiatives to do more with less energy. This not only includes important pieces of legislation such as the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the Eco-design Directive, but also supporting programmes like Intelligent Energy-Europe, to help implement policies in the field. Overall, the European Union is committed to reducing projected energy use by 20% by 2020. Europe recognises energy efficiency as one of the most powerful and cost-effective tools to produce a secure energy future.

Improvements in energy efficiency can make a real difference! The reduction of fossil fuel use decreases Europe’s dependence on foreign energy supplies. The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions limits local air pollution. The expansion of competitiveness and consumer welfare results in significant economic benefits. There are many ways one can save energy and thereby benefit all sectors of the economy.

The mobilisation of all market actors and the launch of energy efficiency measures can greatly contribute to meeting the ‘3 times 20’ targets set at the European and national levels on renewable energy sources, energy efficiency and the reduction of CO2 emissions by 2020. It is estimated that such energy savings would allow Europe to reduce its CO2 emissions by 780 million tonnes and save €100 billion in fuel costs. Local and regional energy actors are already actively contributing to improving energy efficiency in their communities through the introduction of measures, such as the retrofitting of buildings, climate competitions or the provision of incentives for purchasing energy-efficient products. A wealth of experience in this field is available on: CCRES site.

About CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES

CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES (CCRES)• was founded in 1988 as the non-profit European Association for Renewable Energy that conducts its work independently of political parties, institutions, commercial enterprises and interest groups, • is dedicated to the cause of completely substituting for nuclear and fossil energy through renewable energy, • regards solar energy supply as essential to preserve the natural resources and a prerequisite for a sustainable economy,• acts to change conventional political priorities and common infrastructures in favor of renewable energy, from the local to the international level, • brings together expertise from the fields of politics, economy, science, and culture to promote the entry of solar energy, • provides the opportunity to play a part in the sociocultural movement for renewable energy by joining the association for everyone, • considers full renewable energy supply a momentous and visionary goal - the challenge of the century to humanity.
