U4energy is a pan European wide competition on energy efficiency for schools up until secondary level across the 27 European Member States as well as Norway, Croatia, Iceland and Liechtenstein. The U4energy competition mobilises schools to take action and share their achievements in promoting energy efficient behaviour amongst students, teachers and their wider communities.
U4energy invites organisations to support and actively contribute to increasing the visibility and impact of this European initiative. By supporting U4energy you are helping Europe to achieve its ambitious climate and energy targets and to switch towards a low carbon future. Below you will find the logos and statements of all U4energy friends.

|"According to AEDE, educating on energy use is essential for Europe. It contributes to the education of responsible citizens, able to understand and develop the economic and social model of Europe. It requires a European Union that is stronger and more united."|
Jean-Claude Gonon, Secretary-General of AEDE
|"Energy education plays an important role in preparing today’s pupils for tomorrow’s challenges. European schools should collaborate & learn on global issues to forge cross-border synergies on common concerns. U4energy provides an opportunity for pupils to learn 'smart, sustainable and inclusive growth'."|
Marc Durando, Executive Director of European Schoolnet
|"Cities and towns run community climate programmes, and need the youth and their teachers to understand global climate change and their important role in climate change mitigation. ICLEI Europe encourages local governments across Europe to link to U4energy - the sustainable energy transition phase needs all ages on board!"|
Maryke van Staden, Coordinator of ICLEI's European Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Campaign
|"Energy and environmental education has become one of the key actions of AEA's policy. The U4energy concept presents a good way to make educational activities attractive to young people by grounding the messages of efficiency and sustainability within games and competition, an educational methodology that is very attractive and motivational to students." |
Cesare Migliozzi - President of AEA
|"IUSES fully supports U4energy because it shares the belief that energy efficiency should be taught at school so that pupils can learn how to save energy throughout their lives. Involving students in an amusing competition means involving them in energy saving with a hands-on approach, allowing them to learn by doing how to save energy and the environment."|
Fabio Tomasi, Coordinator of IUSES
|"The Euronet 50/50 project promotes energy efficiency at schools around Europe and we think that U4energy is a great initiative to further encourage schools to achieve this goal. Therefore we want to support U4Energy and disseminate the competition among the schools of the 50/50 Network."|
