Energy Efficiency

Introduction

The Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency (GEEE) was established to carry out results-oriented activities that help significantly improve energy efficiency in the region, contributing to climate change mitigation efforts; and strengthen regional cooperation, with a view to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The GEEE focuses on regulatory and policy dialogue addressing financial, technical and policy barriers, and on sharing best practices, including strengthening institutional capacity in the field of energy efficiency.

Work Plan of GEEE for:  2020-2021  2018-2019      2016-2017     2014-2015 

In focus

10th International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development
7-8 October 2019
United Nations Conference Centre, Bangkok, Thailand

The Forum will bring together the experts from the energy sector, representatives from Governments, UN entities, international organizations and other stakeholders to explore pathways to close the gap between targets of the Sustainable Development Goal 7 and commitments to mitigate climate change, and actions to achieve them. It will feature a series of roundtables, parallel sessions and side events, which wil focus on a wider range of energy issues, including clean cooking, access to electricity, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and cleaner use of fossil fuels.
The Forum will include the annual sessions of the UNECE Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency and Group of Experts on Renewable Energy.
