Low-Hanging Efficiency Fruit: Still Hanging
Dans le cadre de l'Ifri Energy Breakfast Roundtable, un séminaire avec Claude Breining, Head of European Affairs and Standardization Strategy, Schneider Electric Industries, Yamina Saheb, Senior Building Energy Policy Analyst, Energy Efficiency Unit, IEA, and a representative of Ademe, Agence de l'Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l'Energie (tbc). Chaired by: William C. Ramsay, chercheur, directeur du Programme Energie de l'Ifri et Jacques Lesourne, président du comité scientifique du Programme Energie de l'Ifri.
Several voices have raised doubts that the EU can reach its energy efficiency objective under the current set of policies. National Energy Efficiency Action Plans have been criticized and we must acknowledge the fact that Members have still not grasped the full potential for energy savings which could yield as much as 40% of the emissions reduction needed by 2050 to achieve the 450 ppm objective. How to re-position energy efficiency at the core of EU strategy to fight global warming? Through three different perspectives, this seminar will try to answer this question. A representative of the European Commission will present the comprehensive new Energy Efficiency Plan implemented by the European Commission. Yamina Saheb, an energy efficient expert at the IEA, will address the considerable potential for energy savings in buildings. Claude Breining of Schneider Electric will conclude the presentations with an industrial perspective.
