On October 10th, the European Union will reach a major milestone in its journey towards becoming the first climate-neutral continent as the new Energy Efficiency Directive comes into effect. This directive, part of the "Fit for 55 package" and the "REPowerEU" plan, establishes a stronger legal framework for the EU to achieve its energy efficiency goals. Energy efficiency plays a crucial role in reducing overall energy demand and is essential for the EU's climate objectives, as well as ensuring energy security and affordability. The revised Energy Efficiency Directive, published in the Official Journal on September 20th, 2023, significantly increases the EU's ambition in terms of energy efficiency.
EU Member States now have a two-year window to incorporate the directive's provisions into their national laws. However, with less than seven years remaining to meet the 2030 EU energy efficiency target, it is crucial that the implementation of the EED recast begins promptly and without delay.
Recognizing the need for support during this transitional period, the Leonardo ENERGY webinar platform, an initiative of the European Copper Institute, has joined forces with the Odyssee-Mure Project and the European Council for an Energy Efficiency Economy (eceee) to launch a new webinar series called the "Energy Efficiency Academy".
The Academy will provide a comprehensive and interactive learning experience on various aspects of energy efficiency, such as policy analysis and evaluation, technologies and solutions, and market developments. The Academy will also foster dialogue and exchange among stakeholders from policy, industry, academia, and civil society.
