The facts are indisputable: Europe’s energy future will not – and must not – be identical to what it is today. Renewable energy sources must replace fossil fuels, and in our energy consumption we must embrace smarter and more environmentally conscious choices.

The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign and EU Sustainable Energy Week are about helping to save the state of our environment. But leaders also recognise that modern renewable energy technologies and energy-saving measures could significantly help Europe get out of the current economic slump, and become more globally competitive. In 2007, European accord was reached on key energy targets known as the ‘20/20/20’ objectives: By 2020, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20 % compared to 1990 levels; source 20 % of our energy needs from renewable energy sources; and cut 20 % of primary energy use by improving energy efficiency.

The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign is one of the many efforts that Europe’s leaders are making to meet the ‘20/20/20’ objectives. More efficient use of resources and energy and the application of new, greener technologies will stimulate economic growth as well as help the EU meet its environmental and climate goals.
