Issues related to energy efficiency are among the priority areas of work of the Committee on Sustainable Energy, and are addressed by one of its subsidiary bodies – the Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency (GEEE).
GEEE carries out concrete and results-oriented activities with the aim to achieve the following specific objectives:
- help significantly improve energy efficiency in the UNECE region, thus contributing to climate change mitigation efforts, and;
- strengthen regional cooperation in energy efficiency, with a view to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
GEEE focuses on regulatory and policy dialogue addressing financial, technical and policy barriers, and on sharing best practices, including strengthening institutional capacity in the field of energy efficiency.
