Description The European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) was established at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP16) in December 2010. Our members are some of Europe’s leading multinational companies, a prominent cross-party group of European politicians and energy efficiency campaigners from across Europe. EU-ASE enables these business leaders to join and work together to advance 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.

We aim to: - strengthen and enforce a well-functioning EU legislative and financial framework for energy efficiency and cost-effective decarbonisation, in line with the Paris agreement. - promote a forward looking political agenda where energy efficiency will facilitate further decarbonisation efforts and the integration of renewable energy sources.

Activities Build a solid case to illustrate that existing policy could be more effective and push for an ambitious binding energy efficiency target
