The European Commission has found German plans to support the retrofitting of municipal and commercial diesel vehicles to be in line with EU State aid rules. The measure should contribute to reducing nitrogen oxides emissions by 1,450 tonnes per year, while limiting distortions of competition.
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.
This article presents the results of a detailed analysis of data on environmental taxes in the European Union (EU), complementing the article on environmental tax statistics. It provides information on the structure, payers and evolution of environmental tax revenue.

The 29th annual State of the Climate report, compiled by NOAA’s Center for Weather and Climate at the National Centers for Environmental Information and published today in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, confirms that 2018 was the fourth warmest year on record, after 2016, 2015 and 2017.
EU defence ministers will discuss new technologies and the changing world during the informal meeting of ministers of defence on 28 and 29 August. The topics of discussion include for example artificial intelligence and the effect of climate change on defence and security.
As the world moves towards a carbon neutral future, many different areas from industry to manufacturing are working to reduce their emissions. But scientists are beginning to look at a different area – houses – to work out if it’s possible to reduce emissions from Europe’s homes to zero by retrofitting on a mass scale. And the early signs are promising.
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 a new JRC-led article, leading global scientists bring existing environmental footprints into a single environmental footprint family that can be used to more accurately assess, and identify ways to ensure, local and planetary environmental sustainability.
SDEC 2019 will offer a packed agenda with up to six workshops and eight session. In total we expect to have around 50 speakers and tutors taking part in our event. Everyone interested in district energy should be able to find a interesting option at this event.
At this largest event of the cogeneration sector in Europe, the latest trends from the energy world will be discussed with industry representatives, policymakers and other key stakeholders. Focus will be placed on the role that cogeneration can play in achieving Europe’s climate and energy goals.
SMART CITIES CEE will address the big questions that city leaders face when they are planning their city of the future – governance, digitalisation, citizen happiness, climate change, health, liveability & more.
The Conference is jointly organized by the Petrochemistry Division of DGMK, the Division of Industrial Chemistry of the Società Chimica Italiana (SCI) and ÖGEW Österreichische Gesellschaft für Erdölwissenschaften.
This congress has the objective to join academics, researchers and companies in an international forum to discuss matters related to bioenergy technologies, economic and policy aspects. We believe that we must rethink, personally, institutionally and corporately, the management that we make of the waste we generate and the energy that we have available.
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.
