3:45 pm Roundtable: Energy Productivity Pioneers

For global energy productivity to double at the necessary pace, we will need both existing and new solutions to be rapidly adopted around the world. These solutions often span multiple sectors or systems, and financing, technology, information and regulatory barriers are not easy to overcome. How do we encourage and accelerate the growth and transfer of new market solutions?

As companies adopt game changing market solutions, they build momentum toward doubling energy productivity by adopting solutions at scale. Companies discuss the challenges they face in doubling energy productivity in their own organizations, and solutions providers discuss new ways to address market barriers, and other persistent challenges.
