ECEEE's Zero Carbon Industry 2024

The LIFE Programme was present at the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ECEEE)'s conference focused on the deep decarbonisation of the industry. The event took place in Antwerp, Belgium on 30-31 January.

The event aimed to provide insights and guidance on how to achieve deep decarbonisation of industry, which is vital for Europe’s climate and energy objectives. It addressed the challenges and opportunities of transforming industrial processes, energy management, and corporate culture, as well as the drivers and policies to support the change. 

The event featured high-level plenaries, three parallel thematic tracks with five sessions each, and a couple of workshops, as well as the expected 70 presentations. The event had an informal atmosphere, making it a great opportunity for networking and learning from experts and peers. 

At the event, a stand was exclusively set up for the LIFE Programme where representatives from several LIFE projects were present to exhibit their work, including: 

Odysee-Mure - the project provides updated, well-experienced, user-friendly databases and web-tools for monitoring and evaluating impacts of energy efficiency (EE) policies.  

On 30 January, it was also highlighted in the event’s programme during the keynote session with a presentation titled “What country is the EU champion on energy efficiency? The eceee & Odyssee-Mure 2023 scoreboard report” by Wolgang Eichhammer from Fraunhofer ISI and Odyssee-Mure.  

Energy Efficiency Watch 5 - the project supports the public sector at all governance levels and contributes to ambitious implementation of EE policies and the EU Green Deal through the development of enabling narratives and a policy dialogue platform.  

On 30 January, it was featured in the event’s programme during the keynote session with an intervention called “Challenges and opportunities for the chemical and life science industries” by Els Brouwers from Essenscia, the Belgian federation of the chemical industry and life sciences sector.
