Energy efficiency is now considered by experts and politicians alike to be one of the primary economic and social solutions to the current energy crisis.
This conference organised by Rexel and the CGEMP will be the opportunity to draw up concrete energy efficiency programs and to explore a number of different avenues:

-    How will energy efficiency measures be able to bring about cost savings and create jobs?
-    How do users behave when confronted with these issues and how can we assist them, in particular in residential buildings?
-    Faced with these developments in technology and practices, what role should companies operating in the energy sector, public authorities and consumers play, in France and in Europe?
