Even if the Climate conference COP26 is postponed to 2021, we welcome the EU Commission reaffirming its “strong commitment to the global climate agenda and the European Green Deal” and now 17 EU Member States calling for a green recovery. We are thrilled and committed to support the EU Green Deal and its underlying decarbonization goal: we work on energy transition and climate action projects aiming exactly at providing lasting and ambitious solutions and plans, as recently stated in an opinion. We were glad to hear Radoš Horaček from DG Ener, talking on behalf of EASME at the World Sustainable Energy Days earlier this year, mention EU projects standing out and quote two that IEECP is leading: enefirst & SENSEI.
IEECP has a long experience on energy and climate policies, and has developed a particular expertise on energy efficiency obligations (article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive – with projects such as Horizon2020-funded EPATEE or Ensmov): new projects will start after the summer, which we lead or partner in, reinforcing pillars of IEECP’s work on topics like energy auditing or fuel poverty. They are introduced briefly in this newsletter but more will come in the next editions.
IEECP will carry on providing insights and ambitious solutions to address the climate emergency: many can be found in this newsletter. Do not forget to provide your views on various topics (cold chain energy efficiency, implementing the efficiency first principle, etc.) in surveys shared below, and more importantly, stay healthy and safe.
