International Energy Policies & Programmes Evaluation Conference (IEPPEC) conference 9-11 September 2014Posted on 27 May, 2014 – 9:09 PM
– the leading event for energy policy and programme evaluators
Sharing and Accelerating the Value and Use of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification Practices.
There are a wide range of regional, national and international policies and programmes designed to achieve improved energy efficiency, and therefore reductions in GHG emissions and reductions in living costs. These are top priorities for bodies such as the EU, IEA and UN in addressing the critical issues of climate change, resource conservation and living standards.
The increasing focus on this policy area has resulted in more challenging objectives and intended outcomes for interventions, along with growing investment. But are we investing correctly?
Pioneering approaches to evaluating investments and policy decisions related to energy efficiency will be at the forefront of presentations and debate at the IEPPEC, held in Berlin between the 9th and 11th of September 2014.
The conference presents an unparalleled opportunity to bring together policy and evaluation practitioners, academics and others from around the world involved in evaluation of energy and low carbon policies and programs. Attendees will be able to debate the most effective means of assuring that both commercial and community-based approaches to improving the sustainability of our energy use and making our economies more efficient are based on common metrics that can be compared across regions and regulatory jurisdictions. The focus over the three day conference is for policy makers, program managers and evaluators to share ideas for improving the assessment of potential and actual impacts of low carbon policies and programmes, and to facilitate a deeper understanding of evaluation methods that work in practice.
The conference features:
• Presentation of over 85 full and peer-reviewed evaluation papers by their authors
• Four panel discussions
• Two keynote sessions
• A two-day poster exhibit
· Lots of opportunity to share learning and network with other attendees
