Second Strategic Energy Review 

In November, the European Commission will publish its Second Strategic Energy Review. This is intended to respond to changing developments in the world of energy security and to outline the  plan to  secure Europe’s energy needs for the  coming decades. A  coalition  of leading European associations in the energy efficiency sector believes that any attempt to reduce the dependency on imported energy which fails to reduce current energy demand is unsustainable. The message is  clear: energy efficiency is not an alternative to energy security; it is a vital component in achieving it. This was acknowledged by  Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs at a hearing of the European Parliament’s Urban Logement Intergroup on 18 September when  he said:  “…Security of  supply really starts with energy efficiency.”
