The first “Energy & Environment Clustering Event”, hosted by Durham Energy Institute at Durham University and facilitated by the EUA Energy & Environment Platform, will focus on the need for new skills and knowledge for the energy and climate transition. It will also highlight the crucial mindset change needed to increase efficiency in the use of raw materials and reduce harmful emissions. The concept of the circular economy and the important role of consumers will be addressed.
The Sixth Annual EPRI-IEA Challenges in Electricity Decarbonisation Expert Workshopwill focus on the growing number of mid-century electric sector emissions targets announced by governments and electric utilities throughout the world, near- and long-term strategies to achieve those targets, and potential challenges likely to be encountered along the way.
In the morning, the conference will explore how the EU budget can be used to address the climate emergency and respond to public concerns following scientists’ demands for climate action – most recently expressed in the ‘green wave’ at the EU elections.
In the afternoon, a capacity building workshop will build on the morning conference and bring together civil society organisations from different countries to gather feedback and recommendations on the topic.
Agriculture is responsible for 10% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. Yet €58 billion of taxpayers’ money is spent annually to support environmentally-harmful agriculture.
The EEB is pleased to invite you to join the debate. A range of stakeholders from the EU institutions, industry, academia and civil society will present their views and discuss how better agricultural policy can help address climate breakdown.
G-STIC 2019 will lay the foundations of a comprehensive approach to identifying and discussing integrated technological solutions that can significantly impact the achievements of the SDGs. It will also test this approach on a number of concrete integrated technological solutions.
A transparent system for monitoring and reporting CO2 emissions is needed to support climate-change mitigation goals. To this end, an EU-funded project is combining satellite and ground-based data with Earth system modelling to provide detailed information about worldwide anthropogenic CO2 emissions and their evolution over time.
RE-Source 2019 will be Europe’s leading corporate energy procurement event.
With more markets opening up to the corporate renewable sourcing opportunity, RE-Source 2019 is the perfect platform to network, learn and do business with key players from both the buyer and supplier side.
The WindEurope Offshore conference is the leading-edge, international conference for the offshore wind industry. Get advanced learning, hear about important industry trends and network with your peers, potential clients and collaborators.
New technologies for sector coupling and sector integration and energy carriers such as renewable hydrogen are key to securing a cost-effective energy transition towards a carbon- neutral economy. To reach this potential we must make use of the existing EU energy infrastructure, integrating different energy vectors in a seamless manner.
The main takeaways from the Dutch Climate Agreement debate will be presented, as well as from an analytical work on decarbonisation pathways carried out by Gasunie and TenneT, before discussing challenges and approaches to decarbonising Europe’s energy system.
On 24 September 2019, the Energy Future Exchange (EFEX) Program is hosting a dynamic, don’t-miss conference in Brussels to explore the power and potential of the transatlantic relationship between the US and the European Union (EU) for jointly creating clean, climate-friendly economies. Participation is free of charge, but registration is requested to help us ensure adequate space and avoid waste.
President Salomé Zourabichvili of Georgia has joined a high-level global commission that is studying how to quickly speed up energy efficiency progress through new and stronger policy action, the International Energy Agency announced today.
Join this high-level EURACTIV Forum to understand what action is required to achieve a carbon-neutral mobility sector and to reach the EU’s 2030 and 2050 targets. Is there a single solution or do we need to look at a mix of solutions such as: deployment of low-emission alternative energy for transport; electrification of transport; hybrid vehicles; battery technology; new lightweight materials; digital and connected vehicles technologies; interoperable infrastructure; data analysis?
The Business Booster is the world’s leading event in sustainable energy innovation. You will hear from expert speakers, witness live panel debates, join in interactive sessions – and discover over 150 cutting edge sustainable energy technologies.
The EU needs to put greater emphasis on short supply chains and agroecology in farming in order to preserve its agriculture and make it more resilient to new challenges, such as climate change. Agroecology is also a way to secure our food supply, make our food healthier and as such raise its value.
