World Energy Efficiency Day

World Energy Efficiency Day

On the 5th March we celebrate World Energy Efficiency Day. The initiative, which emerged in Austria during the First International Meeting on Energy Efficiency, aims to sensitize people on the need to reduce energy consumption by reasonable and sustainable energy use. It was then decided to adopt the day to remind the rest of the world about the importance of energy efficiency.

Contrary to what many people think, improving energy efficiency by decreasing our energy use does not mean compromising comfort and our quality of life. Enhancing energy efficiency is based on optimising production processes and energy consumption, using renewable energy sources, promoting responsible consumption and recycling, among others. The reality is that the benefits of energy efficiency results in a greater well-being for citizens, increased security and major benefits for the environment with significant co2 savings.

There are many simple actions we can do all year long, not only on the 5th March: use daylight hours for tasks that require more lighting, turn off lights and electrical devices when they’re not in use, replace old appliances for A certification new ones and use them rationally, prioritise public transport, etc. In addition to the environmental benefits, these actions will lead to economic savings for our pocket.
