The Bartlett Real Estate Institute, London
Monday 29 June – Wednesday 1 July 2020
The conference provides an opportunity for energy policy makers and program managers, evaluators, academics and energy professionals to come together to share their experience and work together to address common issues and concerns. Our theme for the 2020 London conference is Accelerating the energy transition for all: Evaluation’s role in effective policy making.
2020 is a major milestone of the European energy & climate policy framework. The latest trends in final energy consumption have shown that the main energy efficiency target of 20% overall energy efficiency improvement by 2020 could be missed.
By the end of 2019, the EU Member States will submit their final National Energy & Climate Plans, including targets for 2030 and strategies to achieve them.
Meanwhile, in its 2018 Special Report about emission pathways in line with the Paris Agreement and the 1.5°C target, the IPCC has warned that “avoiding overshoot and reliance on future large-scale deployment of carbon dioxide removal can only be achieved if global CO2 emissions start to decline well before 2030”.
The conference will also continue the discussions about non-energy impacts and the possible synergies between energy efficiency and other fields, especially in the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We are particularly interested in abstracts which share learning about :
-What works in accelerating the energy transition and how evaluation has been used to support effective policy making.
-Evaluating whether countries are on track to meet their energy efficiency, renewable energy, and climate goals.
-Assessing progress towards meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
-How utilities, NGO, funding agencies, and private companies assess their achievements in meeting energy and climate change goals.
-How to integrate evaluation to inform the development of policies to meet the new 2030 energy efficiency and renewable energy targets.
-Evaluating progress in developing energy resilience and energy sufficiency.
Abstract submission deadline: Monday 14 October 2019 09:00 CET.
Notification of abstract acceptance: Friday 13 December 2019.
