Workshop: Consumers, Economics and Energy Systems, 17-18 October 2016, UCD Dublin
17-18 October, 2016
Consumers will play a crucial role in the future development of sustainable energy systems. This workshop addresses this issue by bringing together the broad range of disciplines that examine the role of the consumer in energy research, including psychology, marketing and economics. The aim of the workshop is to discuss the latest research on consumers and energy, addressing a number of important topics in the energy agenda, such as the role of consumers in future sustainable energy systems; public acceptance of infrastructure; influencing consumer behaviour; policy instruments; and rebound effects. 

A range of international experts from different disciplines will present their perspectives on consumer behaviour in the energy field. In an open discussion, they will give an overview of the latest academic research in the field, identify the main areas where research is needed, propose solutions, explore ideas for future research and open the ground for future collaboration.

This workshop is likely to be of interest to researchers in the social sciences and humanities, economics, and engineering and policy makers and industry addressing challenges in the energy system in a carbon-constrained world.

Online Debate - Energy Efficiency and Climate Change Mitigation: Are We Doing Enough?
14 January, 2015
Energy efficiency has become a hot topic in energy and climate domains. Yet, is energy efficiency a real key issue for climate change mitigation? How can it be promoted? Mostly through energy pricing? Is the rebound effect a relevant issue? These and other key questions were debated by Tyler Bryant, Energy Policy Analyst, International Energy Agency, and Matthew Kotchen, Professor, Yale University, during an on-line debate past Wednesday, 14 January. The debate was chaired by Xavier Labandeira, Director of FSR Climate.

Energy Efficiency and Climate Policies: a Scoping meeting for FSR Climate
7 November, 2014
This workshop aimed to provide a general overview of the role of energy policies for climate change mitigation. It was organised in three sessions on the general framework, research needs and gaps, and ex-post analysis of applications. The event was designed as a scoping meeting for future research activities of the Climate Polciy Resarch Unit (CPRU) in this area and also to explore collaborative work with other academic and non-academic institutions operating in the field.

Sixth Atlantic Workshop on Energy and Environmental Economics, A Toxa (Spain)
25-26 June, 2014
The Atlantic Workshop on Energy and Environmental Economics (AWEEE) is a biennial scientific meeting organized by Economics for Energy with the collaboration of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The workshop has become an important outlet for the discussion and debate on state-of-the-art research on energy and environmental issues, with a limited number of participants who come from all around the world. The AWEEE combines keynote lectures on specific topics by prestigious academics with the presentation of research by invited speakers and by other participants through an open call for papers. In its sixth edition the workshop focused on the Frontiers in the Economics of Energy Efficiency, including keynote lectures by Massimo Filippini (ETH and USI) and Richard Schmalensee (MIT) and invited presentations by, among others, Anna Alberini (Maryland), Antoine Dechezlepretre (LSE), Kenneth Gillingham (Yale), Frank Jotzo (ANU), Juan-Pablo Montero (PUC Chile), Stephen Sorrell (Sussex) and Kanako Tanaka (LCS Japan).

The Energy Efficiency Gap: Reasons and Implications
12-13 March, 2014
The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), the Harvard Environmental Economics Program (HEEP), and the Duke University Energy Initiative organize a research workshop on The Energy Efficiency Gap: Reasons and Implications. Analysts, policymakers, and scientists have been concerned about the existence, size, and reasons of the energy efficiency gap (the fact that actual observed energy use differs from the theoretical optimum). This workshop brought together renowned economists in order to evaluate possible explanations for the energy efficiency gap, based on recent and ongoing research; identify gaps in the research; and explore implications for public policy.
