As energy demand in the member states of the European Union is still raising climate change mitigation by improving energy efficiency and renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions becomes increasingly important. The growing energy demand of private households, transport and service sectors is a driving force for CO2 emissions in the European Union economies and has to be addressed. The European Union member states have committed to the 20/20/20 goals, cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 20%, increasing the use of renewable energy by 20%, and cutting energy consumption through improved energy efficiency by 20%.
The European Energy Efficiency Fund (eeef) therefore aims to support the goals of the European Union to promote a sustainable energy market and climate protection.
