About Energy efficiency


Reducing consumption at home and at work is still the most cost-effective way to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy security and competitiveness. We are encouraging innovation in two areas that together account for more than 50 per cent of the EU's energy consumption, and at least 33 per cent of its CO2 emissions:

  • Energy efficiency in buildings,
  • Energy efficiency in industry.

See below for an overview of our thematic fields, including the products that we support within each category. For more information on this thematic field please contact:
