IEPPEC – International Energy Policy & Programme Evaluation Conference

 IEPPEC builds a community to support the evaluation of carbon neutral/mitigation policies and programmes to ensure wise investment of resources.

Connecting Evaluators and Implementers of Low Carbon Policies and Programmes

Policies and programmes for increased energy efficiency, energy savings and reduction of GHG emissions are ranked as top priorities by EU, IEA and UN to help the world face the critical issues of climate change and resource conservation. The increasing focus on energy policy and programmes has resulted in more challenging objectives and growing investment. There is, therefore, a need to improve the assessment of potential and actual impacts and to really understand what works and what does not. That’s why high-quality evaluation practices are essential: to overcome the barrier due to the lack of confidence in the results, and to foster experience sharing.

While the primary focus is on evaluations of energy efficiency policies and programmes the IEPPEC actively seeks out work from evaluations related to low carbon or sustainability policies and programmes (e.g., renewable energy generation, transport, waste management, water, food production, etc.), in particular when these other fields have interactions with energy efficiency.



PLANHEAT is contributing to IEPPEC with oganising the informal discussion round: “Decaronisation of Heating Supply” on Wednesday, 27 June, at 10:15 – 11:45.

In this session, the roles and interactions between public authorities and energy technologies are discussed, first at individual and afterwards for collective solutions.
