Energy efficiency, first source of climate change mitigation (Event in French)*

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), energy efficiency is key to achieving a sustainable energy network in the future. In non-OECD countries, energy demand has increased by 80 % since 2000 and energy intensity is 2.5 times higher in 2016 compared to 2000. Energy efficiency is the one action which will contribute the most to achieving the 2 degrees scenario, mitigating climate change.

Public finance for low-carbon transitions: Changing paradigms, policies and practices in Europe and the G20*

This event will examine how public financial institutions such as the European Investment Bank (EIB) can demonstrate leadership in the public finance community to deliver the Paris Agreement and assess the progress achieved in the implementation of policies and financial mechanisms for more energy efficiency investments in Europe and G20 economies, drawing on the work of the Big Shift Global Campaign and the G20 Energy Efficiency Finance Task Group.
