24 Mar 2010

The first ISOPA dinner debate took place during the EU Energy Sustainable Week 2010 and offered the opportunity to discuss the post COP-15 scenario from an energy efficiency angle; in particular, how the disappointment of Copenhagen could encourage the EU to concentrate further efforts on promoting energy efficiency in Europe and the world. Guests included Members of the European Parliament, European Commission officials from Energy and Climate Action directorate-generals, Non-governmental organizations such as WWF and CAN Europe as well as industry representatives. Participants had the chance to discuss the way forward after the disappointments of international climate negotiations in Copenhagen.
