Global Conference on Energy Efficiency Management in Industry

October 19 & 20, 2017 - Barcelona, Spain

Global Conference on Energy Efficiency Management in Industry

Global Conference on Energy Efficiency Management in Industry brings together dozens of industry professionals and business leaders from around the world to discuss challenges for the industry in the field of energy management – aid for energy-intensive industries, building awareness of energy responsibility, cost reduction, and increased energy efficiency through the use of energy audits, energy optimization in practice – are the most important topics about which to be focused. It is also of prime importance to know about the criteria and methodology to select SEUs and carry out energy auditing in an efficient manner.

Ways to employ green energy in the industry and implement energy efficiency through strategic energy management and energy conservation will be discussed. Moreover, promotional factors for energy efficiency and the challenges being faced by the industry for its implementation will also be discussed along with the solutions proposed by energy and industry experts.

In order to ensure survival in the short-, medium- and long-term energy strategy in the current, largely demand-driven oil market and greenhouse gas emissions, it offers a lever we shouldn’t ignore. It’s your chance to be part of this valuable event.

Keynote Speaker

Vincent Berrutto – Head of Energy Unit, European Commission, Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).

The EU has started decoupling its economic growth from its energy consumption and is now on track to meet its 2020 energy efficiency target. However, despite the progress made, the energy savings potential remains high in all sector of the economy, including industry. Member States agreed to cut energy use by 27% by 2030 and the European Commission has proposed recently to raise that objective to 30% and to make it binding.

This presentation will show how the Horizon 2020 programme for research and innovation (2014-2020) is facilitating the implementation of energy efficiency measures in industry, in particular through its ‘Energy Challenge’ which represents about €6 billion of the ca. €80 billion of EU support available in the Horizon 2020 programme between 2014 and 2020.

In the field of industry, Horizon 2020 has co-funded collaborative projects developing and testing new energy efficient solutions; supporting legislation; building capacity amongst market actors; and mobilising large scale investments.

The presentation will not only highlight some of these projects, in various industrial sectors, but it will also present the new funding opportunities available in the period 2018-2020 to all the market players having an interest in reducing industrial energy use.
