Atlantic Energy Efficiency Wrap-up Conference: Paris

After successful conferences in Brussels, Belgium and Berkeley, CA,  the  Atlantic (‘Bloomsday’) EnergyEfficiency Conference will take place in Paris,  France on June 16-17 2011 at the International Energy Agency (IEA), Paris, 9, rue de la Fédération75739 Paris Cedex 15

This project has been funded by the European Union within the framework of the Pilot Project on Transatlantic Methods for Handling Global Challenges (http://igov.berkeley.edu/trans/).

The Atlantic Energy Efficiency Project is a partnership led by University College, Dublin with collaborators Center on Institutions and Governance at the University of California Berkeley, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) Brussels, and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). It is funded by the European External Action Service (EEAS) and SEAI.

The objective of the project is to identify lessons from Europe, the US and Asia as to what should be the priorities to realise the optimum potential of energy efficiency to advance the economy, reduce dependence  on energy imports, limit green house gas and air pollution  emissions, and increase comfort levels
