European policies and measures delivering the needed efficiency improvements

As a follow up to the Brussels Launch of the International Energy Agency (IEA) World Energy Outlook (WEO), eceee arranged a policy seminar to discuss the important challenges raised by the IEA’s WEO: What does this mean for European energy efficiency policies and measures? Are the current policies enough to fill the gaps or do we need stronger policies? The seminar highlighted two sectors: Buildings and Industrial Efficiency. On behalf of IIP, Amelie Goldberg explored Europe's industrial energy efficiency policies to and beyond 2020 and whether they are sufficient to meet the challenges outlined in the IEA's recently released World Energy Outlook 2012.
