The 2018 ACEEE Summer Study is the 20th biennial ACEEE conference on Energy Efficiency in Buildings. A diverse group of professionals from around the world will gather at this preeminent meeting to discuss the technological basis for, and practical implementation of, actions to reduce energy use and the climate impacts associated with buildings. Presentations and discussions will relate to the theme, “Making Efficiency Easy and Enticing.”

The Horizon 2020 funded Project SENSIBLE (Storage Enabled Sustainable Energy for Buildings and Communities) aims to develop, demonstrate and evaluate a storage-enabled sustainable energy supply for buildings and communities. The project is working towards achieving the 2030 target set by the European Union, namely to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% and create a sustainable energy supply.

Europe's energy markets and sector are in the middle of a large transformation process towards a low-carbon system with a much more diverse landscape of market participants. This transition process deeply affects civil society, from consumers to producers, industry to farmers, and tenants to SMEs. It is therefore of central importance to hear the voice and reflect on the interests of citizens and civil society in the process of designing and deciding energy policies.

The European Commission’s “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package of legislation, which was presented at the end of last year, aims, amongst others, at accelerating renewable energy innovation, based on the EU’s commitment to cut CO₂ emissions by 2030.   With renewable energy deployment progressing fast in power generation, the heating and cooling sector still has some way to go to reduce the remaining 84% of EU heating still generated by fossil fuels.

METIS is a mathematical model which can provide highly detailed analysis of the whole European energy system for electricity, gas and heat. It can simulate the operation of both energy systems and markets for electricity gas and heat on an hourly basis for a whole year, while also factoring in uncertainties like weather variations. For example, it can analyse the impact of higher shares of renewable energy down to the hour.   The model can be used at EU country or regional level, right down to the 276 economic regions in the EU which are used by analysts.
