Alfa Laval co-hosted roundtable event at IEA’s 8th Annual Global Conference on Energy Efficiency

The most important energy efficiency event of the year, the IEA Annual Global Conference on Energy Efficiency took place in France on June 6-8. The meeting brought together more than 35 ministers, 50 CEOs, and other senior leaders from more than 90 countries to accelerate progress on the energy efficiency that is needed to address today’s global energy crisis and pressing climate challenges.

Roundtable event on energy efficiency in the industrial sector.

As part of the global conference, leading companies and associations were invited by IEA to an exclusive roundtable discussion to share actions and insights on how to unlock energy efficiency in the industrial sector. Industries account for as much as 50% of potential energy efficiency savings, savings which are vital for reducing CO2 emissions, towards net zero.
This exclusive event was co-hosted by the Energy Efficiency Movement together with Alfa Laval and ABB. Its outcome will be used to guide Energy Efficiency Movement’s priorities and collaboration with IEA.
“Energy efficiency is crucial for meeting the Paris Agreement on time and the industry plays a major role in making it happen. There is an urgent need for immediate response and action, and this roundtable event was an important step to accelerate these actions” says Thomas Møller, President of Energy Division, Alfa Laval.

IEA conference: Strong outcome to accelerate energy efficiency.

In The Versailles Statement: The crucial decade for energy efficiency, ministers pledged to support a stronger policy action, and to prioritize investments for energy and climate targets.
45 governments endorsed the goal of doubling the average global rate of energy efficiency improvements by the end of the decade to foster a sustainable economic growth and helping put the world on a secure and affordable path towards net zero emissions. Additionally, it pledges to all stakeholders taking part in the COP28 Climate Change Conference in Dubai later this year, to raise their ambition and strengthen energy efficiency policy implementation in line with the Paris Agreement.
