Policy roundtable – Make Energy Efficiency visible in the Energy Mix

Online - November 7, 2023

Together, let’s bring visibility to the crucial first fuel our energy systems need – energy efficiency!

Figures showing the energy mix are major inputs to the debates on energy strategies. In the way these figures are currently built, the contribution of energy efficiency is missing: it remains the ‘hidden fuel’ as pointed by the IEA in 2013.

A few examples about how energy efficiency could be visible in the energy mix exist, but mostly in publications dedicated to energy efficiency (see e.g. IEA, ACEEE, ODYSSEE-MURE).

This policy event aims to discuss why making energy efficiency visible in energy statistics does matter, and what could be the next steps forward.

The discussions will build on the findings of a study done by IEECP and supported by the European Climate Foundation and Knauf Insulation.
