Brexit: A wake-up call for a citizens’ energy transition!

Yamina SAHEB

I can’t speak for you, but in my case, the Brexit had for me the opposite effect of the fall of the Berlin wall. I was in high school in 1989, but it was clear to me that the reunification of Germany would lead to a more peaceful and prosperous Europe. In the case of the Brexit, it’s difficult to see what positive outcomes might unfold, especially given that the Brexit implications didn’t seem to have been thought out by its own leaders.

 Energy Savings: First Fuel of Europe by 2030

Yamina SAHEB

In the traditional vision of the primary energy mix, the EU will be fuelled by 2030 first by oil and fossil fuels (oil, gas and coal) will meet 60% of the EU energy demand (based on PRIMES 2013 modelling results)

 Energy Savings: First Fuel of the World by 2040

Yamina SAHEB

In the traditional vision of the primary energy mix, the world will be fuelled by 2040 first by oil and fossil fuels will meet 60% of the global primary energy demand even if policies and measures to keep global warming below the 2 degrees are effectively implemented (data used are those of the IEA WEO 2015 modelling results)

 I have a dream

Yamina SAHEB

I have a dream that one day we will enter a new era, when negawatts make the headlines of energy summits, conferences and meetings.

A day when negawatts are sold across world markets, from Wall Street to the City, from Dubai to Hong Kong. A day when the amount of negawatts produced and sold decides a country’s membership in the World Trade Organisation.

 Towards Energy Efficiency Through Behavior Change in Military

The main goal of the workshop is to share knowledge and experience for accelerating and streamlining the processes of enabling an embedding energy efficiency behaviours. To this aim, the workshop facilitates discussion of the recent initiatives on behavioural changes for achieving energy efficiency and, consequently, environmental goals, allows for collaboration and collective learning among attendees; as well as the current state of related strategies in light of the mentioned objectives.
