Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) 2017 in Brussels
May 17 - May 18
The objective of this first EMP-E meeting is to provide a peer-reviewed digest of model and policy insights for European energy scenario projects. It aims to initiate a long-term forum for exchanging research, development and practice of energy system modelling in Europe and, where feasible, promote the sharing of data and resources and improve the efficiency of research in the area. The results of the meeting will be published in a special issue of the journal “Energy Strategy Reviews”, which will be provided as input to high-level events such as COP23  in Bonn.
Furthermore, as a first meeting it provides the possibility to discuss future EMP-E meeting structure and format with the aim to propose follow-up meetings. The EMP-E fulfils a recommendation of the Horizon 2020 Advisory Group  for Energy to set up a European forum for energy modelling .
Key themes to be highlighted in the 2017 meeting are the ‘energy union’, its ‘transition’, transparency, scenario definitions and the SET Plan. Furthermore the EMP-E concept will be discussed with the aim to propose follow-up actions.
