Energy Charter delivers a panel on energy efficiency policies

On 16 June 2016, the Energy Charter Secretariat jointly organised a panel session attended by approximately fifty participants titled 'Energy Efficiency Policies: Challenges, Data, Results, and Lessons Learnt'  with the Association Technique Energie Environment (ATEE) during the EU Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels.

During the session the panelists gave an overview of the conclusions from key European initiatives in the field of evaluation of energy efficiency policies, and from the In-Depth Energy Efficiency Reviews done by the Energy Charter. They also discussed what has been achieved in terms of monitoring and evaluation practices in European and Central Asian countries, and what could be further improved in order to support a stronger development of energy efficiency policies and markets. 

Presenters also highlighted the important role that the Energy Charter Treaty and the Protocol on Energy Efficiency and Related Environmental Aspects (PEEREA) play in promoting foreign investments and inter-governmental expert sharing in energy efficiency.

Questions and remarks from the audience mostly focused on the row of data collection and inter-institutional cooperation framework in the fields of energy efficiency.
