Who We Are

Established in September 2013, the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (Copenhagen Centre) is dedicated to accelerating the uptake of energy efficiency policies and actions at a global scale. The Centre is institutionally part of the UNEP DTU Partnership – a UNEP collaborating centre operating under a tripartite agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UN Environment and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and with over 28 years of leading international research and advisory work on climate, energy and sustainable development.

The Copenhagen Centre is the global thematic hub for energy efficiency for the United Nations Secretary General’s Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) initiative, with prime responsibility to support action towards the SEforALL energy efficiency target of doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030.
