European Business Council for Sustainable Energy (e5)

The European Business Council for Sustainable Energy (e5) champions the future viability of European business. The abbreviation e5 stands for the five dimensions of a sustainable industrial society: e-nergy, e-conomy, e-fficiency, e-nvironment and e-mployment. Initially, e5 was founded in Germany in order to promote the potential of sustainable energy use and the implementation of modern, climate-friendly technologies in the European Union (EU) and at the then novel international climate negotiations.

e5 identifies key factors for the future viability of markets, business models, technologies and economies. As an internationally recognised dialogue platform, it advances knowledge exchange between business, science, civil society and policy-makers. As an entrepreneurial vanguard initiative, it promotes sustainability and future viability of European business by means of pioneer projects and representation of interests in political debates.

e5 is supported by approximately 100 members from diverse business segments, besides resource-efficient technologies in the spheres of electronics, construction, materials, facilities, fuel cells, transport and modern communications there are renewable energies, biogas and heat and power cogeneration.
