Event – Webinar: Perspectives on the multiple benefits of energy efficiency for ASEAN (18 October)

Most energy efficiency policies are justified on the basis of energy savings, together with contributions to energy security and climate change mitigation. However, improved energy efficiency also delivers additional, non-energy benefits for individuals, the broader economy, and society. We call this the “multiple benefits” of energy efficiency. These benefits include various macroeconomic benefits (e.g. shifts in energy trade balances and employment), increased access to energy, and affordability of energy services, reduced air pollution, and fiscal improvements for national and sub-national entities.

Remarks by Commissioner Phil Hogan at Conference on “Civic Energy Systems Development in the Fight Against Smog in Rural Areas”, Grodno, Poland

“Today you are asking the question: How can we develop energy systems to reduce smog in Poland’s Rural Areas? I would argue that the question needs to be answered in two parts. First, how can harmful carbon emissions be reduced in rural areas, particularly in agricultural activity?
