The 1st industrial revolution was fuelled with coal, the 2nd with mainly oil, gas and to some extent nuclear energy while the 3rd one experienced a shy introduction of renewables in the energy mix. The 4th industrial revolution might well be fuelled first with energy savings if countries from all over the world implement the Paris Climate Agreement.
This workshop aims to provide participants with practical instruments and methodologies, which can support the acceleration of energy efficiency actions. The workshop is structured around four thematic blocks:
Science Centre NEMO, Amsterdam
In the traditional vision of the primary energy mix, the EU will be fuelled by 2030 first by oil and fossil fuels (oil, gas and coal) will meet 60% of the EU energy demand (based on PRIMES 2013 modelling results)
In the traditional vision of the primary energy mix, the world will be fuelled by 2040 first by oil and fossil fuels will meet 60% of the global primary energy demand even if policies and measures to keep global warming below the 2 degrees are effectively implemented (data used are those of the IEA WEO 2015 modelling results)
I have a dream that one day we will enter a new era, when negawatts make the headlines of energy summits, conferences and meetings.
A day when negawatts are sold across world markets, from Wall Street to the City, from Dubai to Hong Kong. A day when the amount of negawatts produced and sold decides a country’s membership in the World Trade Organisation.
The main goal of the workshop is to share knowledge and experience for accelerating and streamlining the processes of enabling an embedding energy efficiency behaviours. To this aim, the workshop facilitates discussion of the recent initiatives on behavioural changes for achieving energy efficiency and, consequently, environmental goals, allows for collaboration and collective learning among attendees; as well as the current state of related strategies in light of the mentioned objectives.
