The emphasis on improving energy efficiency or better use of existing energy sources is underrepresented or missing from the public debate. There are platforms focused on specific aspects in energy efficiency (for example some organizations promote energy savings specifically in buildings). However, a broad platform looking at energy efficiency in all three major areas (buildings, industry, transport) is needed to promote energy efficiency as a serious policy concern and an important aspect in: · reducing dependency on energy sources imports and thereby increasing security · making Czech economy more competitive (currently CZ economy consumes 50% more energy per CZK of GDP than EU15 countries) The “motto” of such platform could be: “Let’s talk about more energy sources only after we have done everything to make full use of the potential of existing sources”. For more view the attached letter by Ondřej Šrámek of Knauf Insulation who initiated this meeting that could lead to establishment of the Energy Efficiency Platform. Please, register on-line.
