2020 Europe Conference
2020 Europe Conference
We cordially invite you to attend the
Energy Evaluation Europe 2020 Conference (EEE 2020)
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.
The Energy Evaluation community aims at exchanging new ideas, inputs for current and upcoming debates, experience, feedback, and lessons learnt about all the stages of evaluations.
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”.
This background raises two challenges: a need to achieve more, and to achieve it faster. The conference will therefore explore how evaluation can help to take up these challenges, by avoiding doing the same mistakes as before, by identifying what works and what does not, by questioning what approaches can be the most (cost-)effective, by making possible to stand back and think differently to suggest new solutions.
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 hope you can join us for the 2020 conference.
The Bartlett Real Estate Institute (BREI)
UCL at Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, E15 2GW
The Bartlett Real Estate Institute (BREI) is located at UCL Here East, the university’s new campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London. It is situated within the repurposed broadcast building that was part of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The campus sits side by side with BT Sport, innovation hub Plexal, the studio of choreographer Wayne McGregor, Loughborough University London, and a host of creative and digital start-ups.
A key driver of the design of UCL’s space at Here East was to create visual connections across the entire facility, with the aim of encouraging collaboration and innovation between the various departments. The design focuses on the quality and performance of acoustics, ventilation, lighting and thermal performance.
BREI is well-connected to the transport hub at Stratford, which connects you to central London and The City by rail, bus, DLR or underground. If you’re arriving by public transport, we’re a five-minute walk from Hackney Wick station. Or you can hop on the free shuttle buses that run from Stratford underground, train and bus stations from 07:00 to 22:30.
