Energy Efficiency, a key tool for decarbonization

The Energy Efficiency Watch published Key Policy Recommendations as a tool for policy makers to support in the drafting energy efficiency policies. The design and implementation of energy efficiency policies, and on broader level the energy transition, can be accelerated if accompanied by supportive narratives.



The section provides access to reports, policies, good practice examples, guides and tools developed in the EEW4 project.

How to develop successful narratives around energy efficiency?

The Energy Efficiency Watch published a set of ten case studies, which analyse and consolidate enabling narratives for energy efficiency that resonate in different national and regional contexts.

Our mission and approach

Energy Efficiency Watch 4 is a Horizon 2020 project aiming at supporting public authorities to implement the Energy Union and in particular the Energy Efficiency Directive.

The project intends to develop narratives for the national, regional and local levels, creating a broader understanding of the multiple benefits of energy efficiency such as improvement of air quality, modernization of buildings, job creation, climate protection, and energy security.
