About International Energy Agency
The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous organisation which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 28 member countries and beyond. Founded in response to the 1973/4 oil crisis, the IEA’s initial role was to help countries co-ordinate a collective response to major disruptions in oil supply through the release of emergency oil stocks to the markets. While this continues to be a key aspect of its work, the IEA has evolved and expanded. It is at the heart of global dialogue on energy, providing authoritative and unbiased research, statistics, analysis and recommendations.
IEW 2013 was focused on:
• Climate change – mitigation and adaptation
• Economics of low-carbon technologies
• Energy access and poverty
• Energy and economic growth in emerging economies
• The role of renewable energy in developing and developed countries
The selection of submitted papers and long abstracts was directed and made by the IEW Program Committee, which included, among others, the IEW co-directors and the 2013 co-organisers:
• Geoffrey Blanford, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
• Massimo Tavoni, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM)
• Bob van der Zwaan, Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN)
• Laura Cozzi, International Energy Agency (IEA)
Further information about the workshop and all the materials are available also on the 2013 International Energy Workshop Website.
