The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the European Economic Recovery Plan were two massive stimulus packages passed in 2009 to counter the effects of the economic slowdown.

Against this background, and on the light of the current debates, the Renovate Europe Campaign joined forces with the Alliance to save Energy (ASE) to organise a very timely event, whose aim is to dive into the past to discover which role energy efficiency can play in accelerating the economic recovery. Featuring U.S. experts from MEEA, NAESCO, and BCSE, and European experts from the European Parliament, Climate Strategy & Partners, and OpenEXP, this is a webinar you won’t want to miss. Topics will include the role of energy efficiency in the Great Recession’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the European Economic Recovery Plan, the ongoing impact of these packages on our sector today, and how these plans can inform decisions on upcoming stimulus proposals and recovery plans.

Speakers include:

  • Pernille Weiss, Member, European Parliament (EPP)
  • Peter Sweatman, CEO, Climate Strategy & Partners
  • Yamina Saheb, Senior Climate and Energy Policy Analyst, OpenEXP
  • Stacey Paradis, Executive Director, Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA)
  • Timothy Unruh, Executive Director, National Association of Energy Service Companies (NAESCO)
  • Lisa Jacobson, President, Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE)

The session will feature remarks from Clay Nesler, Interim President of the Alliance, and Adrian Joyce, Renovate Europe Campaign Director.
