About Energy Efficiency

The Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency (GEEE) was established to carry out concrete, results-oriented activities that, in line with the "Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) initiative of the United Secretary-General, help significantly improve energy  efficiency in the region, thus contributing to climate change mitigation efforts; and strengthen regional cooperation in energy efficiency, with a view to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Group of Experts focuses on regulatory and policy dialogue addressing financial, technical and policy barriers to improve energy efficiency and on sharing experience and best practices in the field of energy efficiency in the United Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) region, including on strengthening institutional capacity in energy efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Electricity System Development: A Focus on Smart Grids. Overview of Activities and Players in Smart Grids The purpose of this study is to provide a brief overview of smart grids and its role in the development of electricity systems. This is accomplished by defining smart grids, highlighting the major drivers for deployment, outlining the range of actors that need to be engaged, and a vision for electricity system development. The paper presents some possible future work that could be carried out by the UNECE to both engage in the global smart grid dialogue and serve member States.
