In a letter to EU Energy Commissioner Piebalgs, a group of eight trade associations representing sectors as diverse as building insulation, light-bulb manufacturers and household appliances is calling for greater recognition of efficiency measures in the EU’s Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan). The group urges greater recognition of energy-efficiency technologies in the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan), that was presented by the European Commission in November last year. The group “insists that energy efficiency should figure more prominently in the SET-Plan, since it is the area with the most potential for cost effective emission reductions in the medium term”.  Also the EU Parliament report that was adopted last July on the SET Plan included a bigger emphasis on energy efficiency. The EHA has submitted its interest to join the group.
