Introduction (Version Française)

This workshop is part of eceee’s work on energy sufficiency.  

The energy sufficiency project has produced a number of concept papers and workshop reports, available on the project website: www.energysufficiency.org.  The concept papers discuss different aspects of energy sufficiency and are intended to stimulate debate.  The workshops are part of the conversation about the issues that the papers raise.

The final stages of the project will bring together the ideas debated into briefings for local, national and EU policy makers.  This workshop is designed to contribute the views of stakeholders in France as well as from other countries, and to allow those who are interested in energy sufficiency to listen to one another’s ideas.

Energy sufficiency 

Energy sufficiency can be described as a state in which people’s basic needs for energy services are met equitably and ecological limits are respected.  It can also be described as the actions that move us towards this state; policy or practice changes that change the nature or the quantity of the energy services that we demand.

This workshop 

The workshop will offer French and international views on the concept of sufficiency and how it can be translated to action in sectors including buildings, appliances, urban planning and transport, and agriculture.

Attendees will hear and discuss the views of a wide range of stakeholders including government, NGOs, civil society representatives, academics and international organisations.

A report on the workshop will be produced, circulated to all attendees and made available on the project website.
