The European Engineering Industries represented by Orgalime are firm believers in the potentials of energy efficiency: energy efficiency helps in securing the stability and robustness of the EU energy system and decreases Europe’s dependence on energy imports and therefore our vulnerability. These are crucial elements for supporting the EU’s security of energy supply. The EU 2050 Energy Roadmap identifies energy efficiency as a “no regrets option” and confirms that a high energy efficiency scenario leads to lowest electricity prices. Thus, energy efficiency helps to reduce consumers´ energy bills and to alleviate energy poverty. The International Energy Agency (IEA) confirms the significant potential of energy efficiency and energy savings measures to help for gaining time for a global climate change agreement and for boosting growth.
