International Energy Policy & Program Evaluation Conference (IEPPEC)
Science Center NEMO, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Focus Areas:
Evaluation of energy efficiency policies and programs
Type of Event:

The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for the presentation, critique and discussion of sound evaluations, as well as for experience sharing about evaluation practices. The conference aims at gathering new ideas, inputs for current and upcoming debates, experience feedback and lessons learnt about all the stages of evaluations (preparation, realisation, analysis of results, evaluation use).

The primary focus is on evaluations of energy efficiency policies and programmes, including non-energy impacts (health, jobs, etc.). It is also open to inputs from evaluations related to low carbon or sustainability policies and programmes (e.g., renewable energy generation, transport, waste management, water, food).
