This is the full program of Energy Efficiency Drives Jobs: A European Perspective on October 20, 2016.
Join the Building Energy Exchange for this unique opportunity to hear from a leading figure in European energy policy
on the potential for energy efficiency projects to boost the global
economy. Dr. Yamina Saheb is Senior
Energy Policy Analyst at the Paris-based OpenExp, an organization that supports
business and policy leaders in the pursuit of sustainable development goals.
Dr. Saheb will present the findings of
her recent report, Energy Transition of the EU Building Stock: Unleashing the 4th
Industrial Revolution in Europe. The report lays out the case for an

integrated, streamlined and effective. In 2015 alone, the energy retrofit market in the European Union is
estimated to have been more than 100 billion euros and to have resulted in
nearly 900,000 jobs. Dr. Saheb’s “Efficiency
First” investment and policy framework looks to industrialize the energy
efficiency sector through measures that could drive nearly a 50% increase in
Such an integrated framework clearly
has resonance among New York policy stakeholders in both the public and private
sphere. Audience discussion will follow
