ECEMP 2022 Conference

Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges, and opportunities

October 5-7 2022, online/Brussels

This year`s EMP-E Conference under its new name “European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform (ECEMP)” will be held online or in-person (depending on the pandemic situation) on October 5-7, 2022.

The conference website is now online and the submission system will be soon available!

In agreement with the European Commission, we have adopted this new name to consider the increasing role of climate policies and climate change and their impact on energy demand and supply planning.

This year’s conference will be planned again as an online event, due to uncertainties regarding the possibility of physical meetings. However, we are still investigating options for a hybrid event and we will send communications by  April, in case the decision of an online event changes. We will set up the same possibilities for interaction as last year to ensure an engaging, policy-oriented and enjoyable conference experience.

This year, the overarching topic is: Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges and opportunities.

We will encourage paper and poster abstract submissions which fit the following sub-themes:

  • Day 1: Mitigation, adaptation and climate impacts
  • Day 2: Innovation, societal and technical changes for Net Zero
  • Day 3: Bridging national and European energy modelling to inform strategies for 2030, 2040 and 2050.

The submission portal and more information about the guidelines for abstracts will be published on the conference website in the coming weeks.
The deadline for submission will be June 20, 2022.

We look forward to receiving your abstracts for oral/poster presentations!

The ECEMP Organization Committee from the ECEMF project is composed by:
