This seminar will present and disseminate the findings of the EEW4 project survey and reports. An main focus of the EEW4 is energy efficiency narratives. During the presentations and discussions, the seminar aims to discuss and refine industrial and business narratives in particular. While doing so, we will ask ourselves how we can refine the “to dos” – how do we empower energy experts/policymakers to successfully use the narratives to influence and communicate effectively?

Q&A and discussion


End of seminar

Questions to discuss:

  • How do the draft narratives resonate?
  • What existing narratives or counter-narratives are used effectively by our community? What are lessons learned?
  • What are the key linkages with critical industrial trends e.g., Industry 5.0, Digitalization? Resilience? Job creation?
  • Is there cohesion around one dominant industrial narrative? Do experts and policymakers need a menu of narratives or sub-narratives depending on the context?
  • What evidence, good examples, etc back the narrative(s)? What are experts and policymakers missing to make arguments more compelling/attractive?
