EMP-E 2021: Energy System Modelling, Methods & Results to support the European Green Deal – October 26 – 28th 2021, on line
The H2020 Energy Modelling group together with the European Commission DG Research & Innovation are pleased to announce that the 5th EMP-E Conference will take place virtually between 26-28 October 2021.
The annual EMP-E conference brings together Europe’s energy modelling community over a three-day period in a forum for deep exchange of research and modelling practice and varied discussions. The event will feature a balanced mix of high-level panel discussions and interactive workshop sessions to enable a peer-reviewed digest of models and policy insights for the transformation of the European energy system. The EMP-E 2021 conference will be a forum for exchange among researchers and modelling teams from across Europe; from H2020 projects, representatives of the European Commission as well as partners from industry and civil society.
The content of the three days will be arranged as follows under three broad themes:
- Day 1: Policies and Targets: Targets for 2030 and 2050, COP26, biodiversity and environment policies and aiding post COVID recovery;
- Day 2: Linking Sectors and Technologies: The building sector, smartness of energy systems, digital input and technological diffusion;
- Day 3: Modelling-specific issues: How to promote better transparency, collaboration across modelling teams, how to capture (model) social and behavioural change.
EMP-E was created in 2017 and has since been organised on a yearly basis by the H2020 Energy Modelling group – a group of 8 projects funded by the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Programme. This year, the event is coordinated by SENTINEL – the Sustainable Energy Transitions Laboratory, with support of NAVIGATE, SPINE, WHY, OpenENTRANCE, AURES, PLANET, Plan4RES and MAGNITUDE.
