IEA’s Conference On Energy Efficiency To Be Organised By Ireland in Dublin

Published

on

The International Energy Agency’s fourth annual global conference on Energy Efficiency will be organized by Ireland in Dublin on 24 June 2019.

The IEA’s annual conference attracts a large international audience and brings together Ministers, CEOs, heads of international organizations and other senior leaders to push global progress on energy efficiency.

The event will begin with an address by Taoiseach Mr. Leo Varadkar, Prime Minister of the Republic of Ireland. Ireland is a founding member of the IEA and has an influential record of performance on energy efficiency. The announcement follows a meeting between Dr. Fatih Birol, the Executive Director of the IEA, and the Taoiseach at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

This year, the conference theme is Modernising Energy Efficiency through Digitalisation, with a focus on the next generation of efficiency policies using digital technologies and data analytics. The event will also feature senior representatives from major technology companies to outline how innovative technologies can enhance global energy efficiency.

“Energy efficiency is the first fuel in a global sustainable energy system, and digital technologies can help boost efficiency gains across a range of economic sectors”, Dr. Birol said. “Holding our annual conference in Ireland will be an excellent opportunity to shine a spotlight on this critical topic together with leaders from across the globe.”

Energy efficiency is a key focus area for the IEA, which conducts a range of activities on energy efficiency including in-depth analysis, best practice sharing with governments across the globe and capacity building with policymakers in emerging economies. The IEA also provides extensive online resources on efficiency, analysis, and data.

“Energy efficiency is an essential element of our response to the challenges posed by climate change. By making our homes, businesses, and communities more energy efficient, we can reduce our carbon footprint and make a positive contribution to future generations. I am pleased that the IEA is holding its global conference in Dublin this summer. Ireland has a strong record of energy efficiency and I look forward to discussing how we can take a leading role in this area in the years ahead” Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said.

The recent study by the IEA points that, despite solid gains made since the turn of the century, and extensive evidence on the multiple benefits using energy more rationally, progress on energy efficiency has slowed in recent years.

Some countries have made big progress and innovations, but governments generally are not introducing enough new efficiency policies. In addition, global investments are still far below what is required to reach the full potential of energy efficiency. The conference will provide an important occasion for key international stakeholders to take stock of progress on efficiency and to commit to renewed action.
