EFIEES represents Energy Efficiency Service Companies. These companies ensure an overall management of energy demand to end-users. They provide operational maintenance and management of equipment of their industrial, tertiary and residential customers (collective or individual), public or private: this covers, in particular, sportive installations, schools and hospitals. They commit, by long-term contract, on a technical, financial, economic and environmental performance. Their remuneration is based on the performance commitment, defined on compliance with operating quality standards and/or delivery on supply of improvements in energy efficiency. EFIEES’ members optimise CO2 emissions by district heating networks and combustion installations they run in 12 EU Member States. They employ 130.000 people across EU with a turn-over of 30 billion of Euros.
Eurima is the European Insulation Manufacturers Association and represents the interests of all major mineral wool producers throughout Europe. Eurima members manufacture a wide range of mineral wool products for the thermal and acoustic insulation and fire protection of domestic and commercial buildings and industrial facilities

The E.V.V.E. is an independent and Europe-wide politically active interest grouping whose activities aim at the promotion of systems to save energy and water in buildings. Amongst their members are leading companies developing and producing systems for heat and water cost allocation as well as carrying out the service for the consumption-based billing of energy and water costs within the European Union and beyond.
The European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EuroACE)
EuroACE, the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings, was formed in 1998 by Europe’s leading companies involved with the manufacture, distribution and installation of a variety of energy saving goods and services. EuroACE counts 13 members, representing 280 000 employees in more than 900 factories and office locations in Europe. The specificity of EuroACE is that all energy efficient technologies are represented, from heating & cooling equipment, insulation, lifts, lighting, to maintenance regimes and controls, ventilation equipment or windows. EuroACE works together with the European institutions to help Europe move towards an efficient use of energy in buildings, thereby contributing to the EU’s commitments on job creation, energy security, and sustainability.
The European Copper Institute
Joint venture between the world’s mining companies (represented by the International Copper Association, Ltd) and the European copper industry. Its mission is to promote copper’s value to modern society, including its essentiality for health, technology and the quality of life. As one example, higher copper usage will be required to meet the recently approved EU Mandatory Energy Performance Standards for electric motors. Full implementation will deliver electricity savings of 135 TWh/year (more than the annual electricity consumption of Finland and Greece) and avoid 63 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Glass for Europe
Trade association for Europe’s manufacturers of building, automotive and transport glass, all derived from flat glass. Glass products not only provide light, comfort, style, security and safety, they are also essential to energy-efficient buildings, houses and transport. Windows containing high-performance glass such as low-e insulating glass, which helps keep warmth in, and solar-control glass, which reflects unwanted heat away, help reduce energy consumption, while high-transmission glass used in solar panels helps to provide a renewable source of energy. Glass for Europe has four members accounting for nearly 90% of the EU’s flat glass production: AGC Glass Europe, NSG-Pilkington, Saint-Gobain Glass and Sisecam-Trakya Cam and works in association with Guardian.
European association representing the rigid polyurethane insulation industry. Its products help to save energy in a wide variety of applications in buildings, district heating, cooling and refrigeration, and industrial systems. PU-Europe members have a total turnover of Euro 4 billion and provide 18,000 jobs.
