The LPG industry's direct contact with end-users can help promote energy efficiency across Europe
Whether considered in the context of emissions reduction, supply security, or economic competitiveness, the case for pursuing ever-increasing levels of energy efficiency in Europe is overwhelming. From buildings, to buses, to boilers, there are countless opportunities to "do more with less".
AEGPL strongly supports this movement and welcomes the EU's efforts to promote efficiency through regulation. As a naturally occurring gaseous fuel, LPG offers inherent efficiency advantages which can be exploited in a diverse range of applications including heating, cooking, transport and industry.
Furthermore, thanks to its direct contact with end-users at the point of delivery, the LPG sector is particularly well-placed to promote more efficient use of fuel and the cultivation of better informed and more empowered energy consumers. This is achieved through the provision of services such as energy audits and recommendations as well as the development of high-efficiency technology such as LPG-fuelled micro-cogeneration systems which allow for the simultaneous production of both heat and power and allow end-users to sell unused electricity back to the grid.
In cooperation with key stakeholders including the EU institutions and other relevant players, AEGPL is actively engaged in the process of developing energy efficiency legislation in key areas such as building performance, the eco-design of energy-using products, and energy services.
