Energy Efficiency Action Plan - 2011

Published: 4 March 2011

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

Energy efficiency is a key issue for European engineering industries represented by Orgalime.  Our industries are major energy consumers and also the industries which provide the enabling technologies for achieving energy and resource efficiency on a very broad basis (from production, to distribution and to the consumption phase).

We support an ambitious Energy Efficiency Plan, which would take into account the following core principles:

• A full implementation of existing EU legislation

• A consistent, stable and predictable regulatory framework

• A global and integrated approach

• EU leadership in technological innovation

• The promotion of lead customer markets here in the EU

• An active public sector which promotes the adoption of energy efficiency including by example

• A push for education, training and information campaign on energy efficiency
