Press release

Ahead of the Extraordinary Energy Council on “Save Gas for a Safe Winter” taking place on the 26 of July 2022, Cepi, Cerame-Unie, CEWEP, COGEN Europe, ESWET - European Suppliers of Waste-Energy Technology & Primary Food Processors (PFP) call on Member States to prioritise the efficient production of energy through cogeneration. This will not only help reduce overall gas use, but also minimise energy waste and limit disruption to critical industries and energy services.


Our associations, representing major European industries and local energy companies, ask for urgent measures to safeguard the operation of cogeneration installations, as an energy efficiency solution, complementing absolute demand reduction, diversification of energy supply and the switch to cleaner fuels.
