One week after it presented its new energy/climate change package (see my post of 23 Jan), the EU is holding its annual Sustainable Energy week. Just as in last week’s proposals, the use of renewable energy will be in the spotlight. Two sessions on Monday will be dealing with the role of renewables in respectively the heating and cooling sector and rural electrification.
Energy efficiency is the other focus of the first day with a special session on how the electricity sector is introducing best practices in energy efficiency in its operations and another one on the role of ICT for saving energy.
Over the weekend, the Independent on Sunday published the findings of a new Accenture report showing that climate change is still very low on big businesses’ agenda.Author : Willy De Backer
