The European ECO Forum Issue Group on Energy was established in September 2000, at the European ECO Forum Strategy meeting in Kyiv (Ukraine). The aim of this group was to follow and promote developments in the UNECE region regarding renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, cleaner energy etc. Currently this group is not active but the European ECO Forum follows the UNECE work on Sustainable energy. Many of our organisations are actively contributing to the UNFCCC processes.
