Connecting Evaluators and Implementers of Low Carbon Policies and Programmes
Policies and programmes for increased energy efficiency, energy savings and reduction of GHG emissions are ranked as top priorities by EU, IEA and UN to help the world face the critical issues of climate change and resource conservation.  The increasing focus on energy policy and programmes has resulted in more challenging objectives and growing investment. There is therefore a need to improve the assessment of potential and actual impacts and to really understand what works and what does not.  That’s why high-quality evaluation practices are essential: to overcome the barrier due to the lack of confidence in the results, and to foster experience sharing.

The North American IEPEC (International Energy Program Evaluation Conference) has organized conferences since 1983 on alternate years. It has become a key event for the evaluation community and peer reviewed proceeding, with thousands of papers, form a rich knowledge base freely available here.

Despite this uncertainty, renewable energy markets are reaching a tipping point with record solar installations, multi-billion-dollar valuations, and the availability of innovative financing mechanisms. In the West, the states are continuing to advance market investment and deploy innovative mechanisms to spur private capital for clean energy – notably, California’s cap & trade mechanism, and Hawaii’s green energy market program.

The convergence of information technology with energy technology is empowering consumers and challenging incumbents. The combination of advanced technologies with the increasingly compelling value proposition of distributed renewables and competitive utility scale solutions is disrupting everything from traditional utility models to household gadgets to transportation. Learn what this means for the industry’s cost of capital. Join us at REFF-West to learn how best to identify the opportunities for the renewable energy industry and navigate the risks.

Batteries 2014

Wednesday, September 24th - Friday, September 26th

Nice, France

The market for batteries and their components has experienced strong double-digit growth for 10 years and several positive factors should ensure that the rally continues.  Firstly, this growth is based on a continuously changing portable electronics market (laptops, smartphones tablets and now hybrids computers). Secondly, the electrification of the automobile still remains a strong driver. While electric remains a niche, it is a massive one for batteries.

On the other hand, this new market causes the lines to shift and converts the value chain: automakers, not familiar with batteries or power electronics components, want to bring in local suppliers which offer new opportunities to European and American companies compared to their Asian competitors.  On top of that, the energy storage applications are more promising.

For 16 years, the Batteries 2014 event still remains one of the World's most attractive events and the meeting place of technologies (lead acid, NiMH, Li-ion Post), applications (from micro batteries to large format batteries) and of the value chain (chemists OEMs and end users). Batteries 2014 will focus on battery market issues, latest trends, and will allow you to meet new partners and clients!

Asset owners and the financial community are now focusing on the risks and performance of these assets. As the industry gains experience with these assets, it is turning its attention to developing asset management and O&M best practices that will support the industry going forward. Getting things right means better financial results and a better industry.

Solar asset owners, investors, lenders and the O&M community will gather at Solar O&M 2014 to explore the latest developments in the ongoing effort to organize the industry to meet the challenges of operating and maintaining its expanding asset base. From the strategic factors shaping the O&M landscape to best practices on the ground, the event will provide the information and insight needed to better manage the industry’s assets and maximize its investments.
