Energy Efficiency Plan - 2011

COM (2011) 109/4

Energy efficiency is a key issue for European engineering industries represented by Orgalime.  As both major energy consumers and providers of the enabling technologies for achieving energy and resource efficiency, we welcome the Commission’s Communication on the Energy Efficiency Plan 2011 as an initial step to contribute to the achievement of the EU 2020 objectives.

We feel that the most economic and simplest way to reach the EU 2020 energy efficiency objectives is to focus on the inefficient production, transmission and use of energy across market segments, and that the buildings, infrastructure and transport sectors, as well as a massive diffusion of existing energy efficient technologies and products, bring particular potential for realising substantial energy efficiency improvements.
