A presentation by Dr. Yamina Saheb will highlight the main findings of the report and provide the audience timely analysis of the ECT modernization process before the first negotiation round planned in April 2020.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and an interactive question and answer session with the audience
Energy poverty and climate crisis are interlinked, urgent issues, where inaction costs live. The EU’s 2030 energy package is an opportunity to act on both challenges, to radically improve the well-being of millions of people while tackling climate change. Decision-makers have a duty to ensure everyone, in particular, vulnerable households, can take part and benefit from the transition.
The Clean Energy for all Europeans package is the first opportunity for Europe to align its domestic energy and climate targets with the ratified Paris Climate Agreement and the ratified Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, the Commission’s modelling methodology and results do not reflect well the ratified international agreements and significantly overestimate the cost of energy transition.

The Symposium is a one day event, co-located with the AECB's National Conference at Eco Connect London. This high brow symposium is focussed on productivity, resilience and sustainability in the domestic refurbishment sector. It is about re-thinking assumptions and systems in a time of change.
Energy poverty, described as the inability to afford an adequate heating regime in the household, is increasingly acknowledged as a pressing issue across Europe. The European Commission states that over 54 million people, or 11% of the European population, currently suffer from the consequences of energy poverty, the causes of which are multiple. Despite falling wholesale prices for gas and electricity, consumer costs have gradually increased. When combined with poor energy efficiency in many buildings and a squeeze in living standards, Europe’s citizenry has been left in the dark.
Alors que la Commission européenne a présenté fin 2016 une série de propositions pour mettre en œuvre l’objectif qu’elle s’est fixé dans le cadre de l’Accord de Paris sur le climat et moderniser l’économie européenne, encore largement dépendante des importations d’énergie, Global Chance et le CLER – Réseau pour la transition énergétique organisent le 27 juin 2017 un atelier/conférence de presse sur le thème crucial des politiques d’efficacité énergétique de l’Union Européenne.
Le concept de "crapaud fou" est né de l’analyse du voyage que font les crapauds pour se reproduire. Chaque année, de manière grégaire, tous les crapauds se déplacent vers la zone de reproduction. Sauf que, quelques crapauds choisissent d’aller dans une direction opposée, ou trouvent des tunnels que les écologistes creusent pour eux sous les routes. Les crapauds qui suivent les voies conventionnelles se font, souvent, écraser par les automobilistes.
“Crazy toading” means doing things differently or in unexpected way. The concept is based on the analysis of the travel toads make, every year, to reproduce. Each year, in a gregarious manner, all toads move to the breeding area. However, few toads choose to go in an opposite direction, or use the tunnels environmentalists dig for them under the roads. Toads that follow conventional tracks are often crushed by cars. While those who venture in unconventional directions, survive, reach the breeding area and save the species.
The event is hosted by MEP Gerben-Jan Gerbrandy and MEP Morten Helveg Petersen. The aim is to discuss the Commission proposals related to the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
OpenExp is invited to present on its on-going analysis of the EED and the EPBD impact assessments. As shown in the attached presentation:
