Euro-Mediterranean Forum for Energy Efficiency

Monaco – 24 March 2014

The Energy Efficiency Forum – a platform for debate and exchange of knowledge

The Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum (EEF) is an event in Monaco that brings together recognized actors to discuss energy efficiency and its relevance to the economy and politics in the region and the world. The event also aims to support the global energy efficiency targets of the Secretary-General’s initiative “Sustainable Energy for All” (SE4ALL).

This European edition of the EEF was developed following the success of similar events organized in the United States and Asia by Johnson Controls. It is managed in partnership with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Climate Group and supported by GE Lighting.

ENERGIES 2050 will contribute to the debates of the High-Level Forum on 25 March.

ENERGIES 2050 will also make two speeches on March 24 at a round table. The first intervention will concern the work of the Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP-SBCI), which ENERGIES 2050 currently chairs. The second intervention will concern the role of civil society organizations in the Euro-Mediterranean energy transition. This meeting is an opportunity to defend a responsible vision of the building sector and to participate in a platform of debates and exchanges of knowledge on the issues of energy efficiency. It will also be necessary to underline the importance of an enlightened citizen mobilization to accompany the energy transition to be put in place.

See the program of the round table of 24 March


UNEP-SBCI is a global partnership that brings together the main public and private actors in the building and construction sectors (companies, local and national governments, non-governmental organizations, research centers, international institutions …). ENERGIES 2050 one of its founding members. Its purpose is to bring a common message to these actors in order to promote universal adoption of practices aimed at improving the efficient use of resources and energy efficiency in buildings.

The UNEP-SBCI initiative is very relevant to the discussions at the EFS: it aims to develop practical tools such as the Common Carbon Metric that helps establish benchmarks for gas emissions to the greenhouse effect (GHG) of buildings, testing them through pilot projects and assisting governments and industry in implementing policies for cities and sustainable buildings. In particular, ENERGIES 2050 prepared a manual for local decision-makers on urban carbon mechanisms for UNEP-SBCI, the results of which will be discussed at the EFS round table. This manual considers existing and new methodologies for carbon and climate finance and their application in the context of buildings and cities, the importance of the MRV method (measurement, reporting and verification) and the main challenges in reducing GHG emissions in cities.
