Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges, and opportunities
October 5-7 2022
The annual ECEMP conference brings together Europe’s climate and 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 ECEMP 2022 conference will be a platform 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.
In agreement with the European Commission, the former EMP-E Conference has adopted a new name, “European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform (ECEMP)”, to consider the increasing role of climate policies and climate change and their impact on energy demand and supply planning.
This year’s conference will be planned again as an online event, due to uncertainties regarding the possibility of physical meetings. We will set up the same possibilities for interaction as last year to ensure an engaging, policy-oriented and enjoyable conference experience.
All ECEMP 2022 participants are invited to submit their presented papers, posters, or closely related research to one of the two ECEMF 2022 Special Issues at Energy Strategy Reviews and the new and “platinum” Open Access European outlet Open Research Europe. Submissions to both Special Issues are open in the links below.
The original EMP-E was created in 2017 and has since been organised on a yearly basis by the H2020 Energy Modelling group – a group of projects funded by the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Programme. This year, the event is coordinated by ECEMF – the European Climate and Energy Modelling Forum, with support of SENTINEL, NAVIGATE, WHY, OpenENTRANCE, PLANET, CINTRAN, PARIS REINFORCE, EMB3RS, and newTRENDs. The conference does not have a registration fee as it is funded by the European Commission. The projects contributing to the conference have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme.
This year, the overarching topic is: Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges and opportunities.
