Orgalime contributes to public consultation on energy efficiency

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

Orgalime has contributed to the Commission consultation on the "Green paper on Energy Efficiency or doing More with Less" while stressing that it is of utmost importance to avoid extra bureaucracy and administration.

Orgalime believes that, if markets function properly in general, energy efficiency and savings should come as a matter of course.  Before jumping to conclusions and taking new initiatives, it would therefore be appropriate to identify potential bottlenecks, the reasons why energy savings do not pay off in certain areas, and then to address such bottlenecks in a targeted way.
