eu.bac SEDC lunch debate at the EP: Energy Savings in Buildings – Putting Consumers in Control
UPDATED 13-01-2012 - PRESENTATIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE
Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen,
In Europe, 40% of all energy is used in buildings. But, buildings themselves do NOT consume energy - the occupants do. That is why, to achieve the 20-20-20 targets, consumers’ ability to control their energy demand is essential through demand response.
As the electricity supply becomes more volatile and weather dependant, buildings need to become more intelligent and respond to these new demands.
In turn, we need to ensure a suitable and sustainable framework to ensure this happens. What does this mean for consumers, designers and legislators?
The lunch debate will centre on how we can ensure that these considerations are addressed in the Proposal for a Directive on Energy Efficiency and other legislations. To do that, we all need to understand the challenges, the stakeholders and the solutions involved.
Please come to this lunch debate to discuss how we can all, as individual consumers and policy-makers, take the appropriate steps together to reduce our energy costs, consumption and carbon emissions - by putting the consumer in the driving seat.
If you would like to attend, please fill in the Reply Form (the first document above in Word format) and return it to Jennyfer Brendel (email@example.com) by the 09-01-2012 at the latest.
We look forward to seeing you there.
