The workshop ‘Eastern Partnership prospects on energy efficiency and renewable energy’ discussed the state of play and the prospects in the EU and in the Eastern European partner countries (Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Belarus) concerning energy efficiency and renewable energy. The EU and Eastern partners share the objective of ensuring a sustainable, secure and affordable energy and developing energy efficiency and promoting renewable energy sources are key steps in this respect. The EU’s objectives and rules on energy efficiency and renewable sources provide a framework that can inspire policies in Eastern Partnership countries. These countries need to develop a long-term strategy and build a stable policy framework for developing renewables. They also need to strengthen their capacities and increase investments to foster energy efficiency.
