eceee 2015 Summer Study on energy efficiency
1–6 June 2015
Club Belambra Les Criques, Presqu’île de Giens, Toulon/Hyères, France

Our societies face massive challenges: The climate threat is acute and the window of opportunity for changing direction is closing rapidly. Recovery out of the global financial crisis is still slow, and Europe is hardly close to sustainable energy security.

Energy efficiency is by no means the only answer to our challenges, but it can take us a long way. Cutting energy demand helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a more cost-effective way than any other energy policy. Massive investments in energy efficiency can contribute to getting people all around Europe back to work. And cutting energy demand will make Europe more resilient and more productive.

Dates for the next Summer Study now set

The dates for the traditional biennial eceee Summer Study has now been set. The Summer Study is staying at Belambra Presqu'île de Giens, close to Toulon/Hyères, in Southern France. Make sure to mark your calendar so you don't miss this exciting event. The 2013 Summer Study attracted more than 450 participants and judging from the conference evaluations, the 2013 event was the most successful ever with participants giving very positive reviews on everything from programme to the venue.

Evidence-based knowledge and intense networking

The first traditional eceee Summer Study was held in 1993. This biennial conference is an interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral event which has developed into the most important energy efficiency event in Europe. It is here the trends of future policies can be spotted first. See films from the 2013 plenary presentations.

The Summer Studies are the backbone of eceee's ambition to deliver comprehensive evidence-based information on all aspects of energy efficiency. The Summer Study offers a mix of peer-reviewed quality paper presentations, informal sessions set up by participants on the spot, inspiring keynotes and just plain round-the-clock networking. All is fuelled by the energy of hundreds of participants who are passionate about energy efficiency and want to learn and share experiences.

Call for papers

A first call for papers will be issued in the middle of the Summer. Abstracts submission is scheduled to open in mid-August and abstracts are due 2 October 2014. Abstracts are solicited in areas such as energy efficiency policy, transportation and spatial planning, appliances and buildings policy and technology, dynamics of consumption, local action, public sector initiatives and much more.
