Energy Efficiency Global Forum in France
Energy—efficiency, conservation, examination—is at the forefront of the world’s most critical issues. From April 27-29, the Alliance to Save Energy—a Washington, DC-based nonprofit that promotes energy efficiency worldwide to achieve a healthier economy, a cleaner environment, and greater energy security—will hold the 2009 Energy Efficiency Global Forum and Exposition (EE Global) in Paris, France. This is the only international conference and expo currently scheduled that will focus exclusively on energy efficiency, featuring speakers from six continents.
EE Global will showcase energy efficiency as a key solution to the world’s most serious energy challenges, including high energy costs, limited energy supplies, rising demand, and global climate change.
Increasing the efficiency of the transportation sector is a key part of this equation. EE Global sessions on transportation and urban planning will examine creating livable cities with energy efficiency as a foundation, how technology will improve the efficient movement of people and goods in the decades ahead, financing strategies that will create more livable communities through energy efficiency, and effective government policies for increasing the efficiency of vehicle fuel.
