Huge improvements in energy efficiency are occurring across the European Union. Energy efficiency policies are delivering in terms of reducing consumption, safeguarding Europe’s security of supply, reducing CO2 emissions, creating jobs and saving money for consumers. All this brings monetary and non-monetary benefits to Europe’s industry and consumers, including those experiencing energy poverty.
The European Union has successfully managed to decouple energy demand and economic growth. In short, this means reduction in energy use is not linked to a reduction in the economic or industrial activity. The economy can now grow while energy is being saved.
