Concrete solutions for a clean future
„When Bertrand Piccard presented his Solar Impulse airplane to German business leaders at the end of last year, he said that energy efficiency is exciting. I couldn’t agree more! Saving energy is not only one of the supporting pillars of the fight against climate change, but also a driver of technology. Every single one of DENEFF´s 120 member companies proves every day that innovative solutions are available and work, and that climate protection creates jobs, increases economic productivity and stimulates growth. We want concrete actions for a clean future!” - Carsten Müller (MP), President of German Business Initiative for Energy Efficiency (DENEFF)
Founded in 2010 the German Business Initiative for Energy Efficiency (DENEFF) is the strong voice for energy efficiency in Germany, both towards policy makers and in the general public. DENEFF represents more than 120 member companies offering solutions in the field of energy savings along the entire value chain, including disruptive start-ups as well as innovative SME and large multinational corporations. The DENEFF advisory board constitutes of 12 Members of German and European Parliament and more than 20 national experts and opinion leaders.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
