Investing into Climate Smart Economies: Energy Efficiency for SDG 13 (HLPF 2019 Side Event)
15 Jul 2019 -  Why Energy Efficiency?
Globally, energy efficiency is an increasingly important topic of the national development agendas, as countries shift to Climate Smart Economies.
Energy Efficiency will also become a key enabler for achievement of several inter-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
From the climate perspective, energy efficiency measures are among the most cost-effective actions to reduce emissions and mitigate the climate change.
In this context, the Side Event will focus on the following suggested questions:
-What are the effective models of collaboration to help scale up energy efficiency financing and investments targeting climate action?
-How can innovation across multiple areas promote technologies, business models and societal behavior and education to achieve sustainable, low-carbon growth and development?
-How to advance Energy Efficiency Legislation and Standards to make sure that Energy Efficiency measures become enablers for achievement of the SDGs?
