We simply won’t manage the climate urgency without ambitious and effective energy efficiency policies, programmes and investments. Electrification and decarbonisation are key to the carbon-neutral energy transition, but without energy demand reduction where possible, we simply won’t make the transition to a renewables-based energy system fast enough or be able to afford it.
The eceee Summer Studies are a cornerstone in our mission to build and support the generation and sharing of evidence-based knowledge on energy efficiency and demand reduction. In 2021, the Summer Study highlighted the fact that we are indeed facing a new reality. We are now moving into a post-Covid society with massive support programmes for recovery and climate change mitigation. This year, we focus on the people and forces that are agents of change.
The 2022 Summer Study will add a panel on industrial energy efficiency after a ten year absence, but will continue to keep covering the broad range of topics from energy consumption and behaviour, over policy & evaluation, to local energy planning, transportation, buildings, and appliance and product policy.
eceee is acutely aware of the fact that an in-person event has an environmental impact in terms of travel, venue and food. However, we believe it is important to meet in person. We also believe that our event is one of the best events on energy efficiency, long enough, and held relatively seldom, and thereby justifies the travel. We are based on southern France, and this allows most participants to travel by train or other low-carbon modes of transportation.
The 2022 Summer Study offers nine panels on a broad range of energy efficiency topics. It will cover all traditional panel topics, with the addition of industry.
See panels pages for in-depth descriptions.
Panel 1. Dynamics of consumption: less is more?
Panel 2. Efficiency and beyond: innovative energy demand policies
Panel 3. Policy, finance and governance
Panel 4. Monitoring and evaluation for a wise, just and inclusive transition
Panel 5. Towards sustainable and resilient
Panel 6. Energy-efficient and low-carbon mobility for all
Panel 7. Policies and programmes for better buildings
Panel 8. Innovations in products, systems and building technologies
Panel 9. Deep decarbonisation of industry
eceee will keep offering a fruitful mix of scopus-indexed, peer-reviewed papers and extended abstracts.
Stay tuned. See you at #eceee2022
