The Energy Efficiency Global Alliance

Our most critical global challenge is stemming climate change while still enabling global economic development.

There is wide recognition that we cannot achieve global climate goals without significantly scaling up energy efficiency. The IEA estimates that energy efficiency could provide more than 40% of the emissions abatement required by 2040 to be in line with the Paris Agreement (IEA, 2018).

And efficiency investments improve countries’ energy productivity, resulting in multiple additional benefits, enabling them to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, grow their economies, improve public health and ensure energy security.

The technologies, business practices, and policies needed to dramatically improve energy efficiency exist today, but independent EE programs and initiatives—focusing on specific sectors or regions—compete for finite funding and resources that are inadequate to meet global needs.

The Energy Efficiency Global Alliance (EEGA), an international coalition of government, corporate, and NGO leaders that champions faster and deeper implementation of energy efficiency solutions to meet global energy and climate goals, helps meet this need by uniting the voice of efficiency. The EEGA coordinates the efforts of global EE companies, officials, and initiatives to increase recognition of efficiency’s critical role as a climate solution and facilitate its rapid deployment.
