QCEA has published a new briefing paper, the first in a series of Sustainable Energy Security briefing papers. This introductory document outlines why, given the gravity of the inter-related energy and climate crises, the cheapest, fastest and most reliable way to de-carbonise our society is to invest in energy savings and behavioural change.
Take a look at the briefing paper:
We must examine how we use energy today, not simply look at how we replace it. Anything other than energy demand reduction is a short-term solution. As individuals, we can all share the joys of a sustainable life. To do so, we need to develop a new, closer relationship with the energy we use, which will encourage us to value it more, and to use it less.
QCEA sent the Energy Efficiency and Savings briefing paper with an accompanying open letter to the European Commission, European Parliament and Council of Europe Member States permanent representations, encouraging them to be courageous and ambitious in their legislating.
