International Energy Workshop 2014

Sponsors of the IEW 2014

The following institutions provided support for the International Energy Workshop 2014 (presented in alphabetical order):

 


ERC logo   
Energy Research Center of the Netherlands (ECN) is internationally among the leading centres for energy research and technology development. It conducts both fundamental technology research and energy policy studies for the implementation of safe, efficient and clean energy services. ECN employs about 600 staff working on a wide range of energy options, among which solar energy, wind power, biomass and clean fossil fuels. ECN also plays a constantly increasing role in proffering practical solutions, both technical and policy-related, to the global challenge of climate change. The Policy Studies department, one of ECN’s seven research units, focuses on the political and economic aspects of energy technology implementation, and employs a staff of approximately 60. The Policy Studies department possesses extensive international expertise and contacts in energy and climate policy research, environmental policy design plus evaluation and energy systems modelling, as well as sector studies related to e.g. power production, energy efficiency, transportation and the energy-intensive industry. It has long-term experience in technology cost assessments and energy systems scenario development for a large range of energy technologies, among which renewables, CO2 capture and storage (CCS), and sustainable energy resources. ECN’s Policy Studies department excels in national, European and international policy-relevant energy research.

ETSAP logo

The Energy Technology Systems Analysis Program (ETSAP) is an Implementing Agreement of the International Energy Agency (IEA), first established in 1976. It functions as a consortium of member country teams and invited teams that actively cooperate to establish, maintain, and expand a consistent multi-country energy/economy/environment/engineering (4E) analytical capability. Its backbone consists of individual national teams in nearly 70 countries, and a common, comparable and combinable methodology, mainly based on the MARKAL/TIMES family of models, permitting the compilation of long term energy scenarios and   in-depth national, multi-country, and global energy and environmental analyses.

 

EPRI logo

The Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. (EPRI, http://www.epri.com/) conducts research and development relating to the generation, delivery and use of electricity for the benefit of the public. An independent, nonprofit organization, EPRI brings together its scientists and engineers as well as experts from academia and industry to help address challenges in electricity, including reliability, efficiency, affordability, health, safety and the environment. EPRI also provides technology, policy and economic analyses to drive long-range research and development planning, and supports research in emerging technologies. EPRI's members represent approximately 90 percent of the electricity generated and delivered in the United States, and international participation extends to more than 30 countries. EPRI's principal offices and laboratories are located in Palo Alto, Calif.; Charlotte, N.C.; Knoxville, Tenn.; and Lenox, Mass.

FEM Logo
Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) is a no-profit, no-partisan research institution devoted to the study of sustainable development and global governance. Officially recognized by the President of the Italian Republic in 1989 and in full operation since 1990, FEEM has grown to become a leading research centre, providing timely and objective analysis on a wide range of environmental, energy and global economic issues. FEEM’s mission is to improve through research the quality of decision-making in public and private spheres. This goal is achieved by creating an international and multidisciplinary network of researchers working on several innovative programmes, by providing and promoting training in specialized areas of research, by disseminating research results through a wide range of outreach activities, and by delivering directly to policy makers via participation in various institutional fora. FEEM’s operations are inspired by some guiding principles. FEEM sets a bold research agenda addressing big questions and emerging issues in the economic and social context. While strictly linked with the academic community, it embraces intellectual curiosity and supports risk-taking in pursuing research. Its agenda emphasizes real world issues and the policy relevance of the outputs.

 

IRENA logo

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA, http://www.irena.org/) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy.  IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, ocean, solar and wind energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity.
