3–8 June 2019
Belambra Presqu'île de Giens, France 

Picking up on a ten-year old eceee report entitled ”Is efficient sufficient?”, we continue to challenge today’s prevailing concepts in energy efficiency policies. The summer study moves the frontiers of energy policy and established practices, and looks at what is really needed to break the curves of increasing energy demand and rising temperatures.

The theme goes hand in hand with eceee’s ongoing energy sufficiency project and much of the reports and results will be discussed at the event.

Evidence-based knowledge and information exchange is the heart of the Summer Study

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.

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 late August, and abstracts are due in October 2018. Abstracts are solicited in areas such as energy efficiency policy, transportation and spatial planning, appliances and buildings policy and technology, dynamics of consumption, behaviour, local action, public sector initiatives and much more.
