Established in September 2013 as a joint activity of the Danish Government, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2) is dedicated to accelerating the uptake of energy efficiency policies and programmes at a global scale. C2E2 is institutionally part of the UNEP DTU Partnership – a UNEP collaborating centre operating under a tripartite agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UNEP and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and with over 20 years of leading international research and advisory work on climate, energy and sustainable development.
In the context of the United Nations Secretary General’s Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative, C2E2 is the thematic hub for energy efficiency; with the prime responsibility to support action towards the SE4ALL energy efficiency target of doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030.
SE4ALL is a global multi-stakeholder partnership involving governments, the private sector, and civil society. It was launched by the United Nations Secretary-General in 2011 and is co-chaired by the UN Secretary General and the World Bank President. The initiative has three ambitious and inter-linked global goals to be achieved by 2030: ensuring universal access to modern energy services; doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and, doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency is located at the UN City in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is institutionally part of the Technical University of Denmark, within the Department of Management Engineering.
