[Project] EnergyEfficiency 2030 - GBPN Joins Forces to Tackle Growing Energy Demand of Appliances, Buildings and Industry

18-04-2013 | Global全球South-East AsiaSouth-East Asia

The GBPN, together with the Collaborative Labeling & Appliance Standards Program (CLASP) and the Institute for Industrial Productivity (IIP), announced today at the 4th Clean Energy Ministerial in Delhi the launch of a new partnership called EnergyEfficiency 2030.

The initiative aims to upscale energy efficiency for appliances, buildings, and industry – collectively accounting for about one-third of the greenhouse gas mitigation solution globally – and expedite our transition to an energy efficient future by 2030.

Energy efficiency is the fastest, most cost-effective response to growing energy demand and the global climate crisis. It also results in additional benefits to human health and the environment. It generates jobs and economic growth. 
 
With EnergyEfficiency 2030, the three non-profit organisations will leverage their collective technical expertise and global networks to provide decision-makers with holistic, cost-effective energy efficiency solutions. Through the application of global best practices, this initiative will improve greenhouse gas mitigation, enhance policy performance, and increase the productivity and competitiveness of markets and industries.
 
Energy efficiency of appliances, buildings, and industry can provide one-third of the solution to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions globally by 2020: 
Based on results from UNEP 2011, Bridging the Emissions Gap
 
EnergyEfficiency 2030 will work at the intersections of appliances, buildings, and industry, including sustainable cities, emerging technologies, building materials and systems, industrial clusters, and supply chains.

About the partners in EE2030: 

GBPN, CLASP and IIP are independent non-profit organizations operating globally, regionally, and nationally, with teams in China, India, Europe, and the United States.  
 
IIP is a non-profit organization that provides companies and governments with information about the best energy efficiency practices to reduce energy costs and prepare for a low carbon future. It identifies, analyzes, and shares best practices, tools, and information that can boost efforts to reduce industrial energy intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while improving productivity. 
 
CLASP’s mission is to serve as the primary resource and voice for appliance, lighting and equipment energy efficiency worldwide. CLASP envisions a world in which appliances, equipment and lighting are built for maximum energy efficiency and minimal contribution to global climate change.
