Integrating Energy Efficiency into the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP)
This report summarises the discussions and conclusions from the workshop 'Integrating Energy Efficiency into the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP)' jointly organised by the 10YFP Secretariat and the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2) on 8-9 September, 2016 in the UN City, Copenhagen.
Energy efficiency is one of the most available and cost effective options for climate change mitigation. It contributes up to 50% of greenhouse gas reduction in current scenarios while delivering multiple co-benefits. It is also recognized as a key option for the sectors and themes covered by the 10YFP to contribute to the climate agenda. Workshop objectives were as follows: 1. Supporting the 10YFP programmes to mainstream and make the case for energy efficiency – financially, for consumers, policy makers, for businesses and the environment. 2. Facilitate partnership building between the 10YFP programmes, the Energy Branch at UN Environment, C2E2 and further energy efficiency institutions, experts and initiatives. 3. Support the development of action plans for integration of energy efficiency into the 6 programmes. 20 experts from the 10YFP programme areas as well as energy efficiency experts from UN Environment, C2E2, the Sustainable Energy for All (SE for All) Accelerator Platform, and Danish academic institutions participated in the workshop. During this highly interactive event, the six different 10YFP programmes explored entry points for energy efficiency in their respective programmes.
