EU-ASE enables these business leaders to join and work together to advance their common ‘cause’ of energy efficiency, foster good business practices and share ideas.|
|Objectives|| The vision of the Alliance is a future where energy efficiency and end-users empowerment are central to the EU energy system and are fundamental drivers for job creation, sustainable growth, competitiveness, energy productivity, innovation, energy security and decarbonisation.
