TEESlab at the European Sustainable Energy Week 2023!


The Technoeconomics of Energy Systems laboratory (TEESlab) will participate in this year’s European Sustainable Energy Week, Europe’s biggest annual conference dedicated to renewables and energy efficiency. The event will take place in a hybrid format from 21 to 23 of June 2023. The theme for the event this year is “Accelerating the clean energy transition – towards lower bills and greater skills”.

In particular, Dr. Alexandros Flamos will moderate the policy session “Tackling energy poverty through national building renovation plans”, part of the EUSEW thematic block Affordability and inclusion. The hybrid session is organised by ENPOR in collaboration with the ODYSSEE-MURE project and will take place on Tuesday 21 June at 16:30-18:00 CET. The event aims to highlight existing tools and best practices that can increase capacity, knowledge, and skills to reduce energy poverty and therefore potentially help Member States to formulate renovation strategies. Due to the latter, the discussion that will be held will be valuable to national and local policymakers.

Mr. Dimitris Papantonis, Research Associate at TEESlab, will also participate in the session through presenting the Energy Poverty Dashboard, a platform developed within the ENPOR project, which supports stakeholders and policymakers to identify energy poverty in the Private Rented Sector across Europe, and assess the success and failure of energy poverty policies. In addition, the presentation will highlight the ENPOR “Split Incentives quantification” tool, which is also developed in the context of the ENPOR project and aims to identify the share of the triggered benefits from the implementation of energy efficiency interventions between landlords and tenants.

The Technoeconomics of Energy Systems laboratory (TEESlab) is also organising, within the context of the Horizon 2020 TIPPING+, the policy session on “Accelerating just energy transition(s) in coal and carbon-intensive regions”. The online event will take place at Thursday 22 June 2023 at 14:00 – 15:30 CEST. The objective of this policy session is to discuss the learnings from different EU-funded research projects (TIPPING+, Cintran, Entrances, and Justem) on how to accelerate just energy transitions in Coal and Carbon Intensive Regions (CCIRs) in Europe and beyond. Senior researchers and key stakeholders will present and debate the main findings regarding the patterns, dynamics and changes happening in the targeted CCIRs.

Μr. Serafeim Michas, Research Associate at TEESlab, will present the key results of the Greek Case Study on Megalopolis that highlight the energy transition options of the regions towards a new sustainable energy future. The presentation will analyse the risk of Megalopolis entering a new natural gas lock-in, the cost of renewable energy production, the role of energy storage and the benefits of electrification for the citizens and the green rebranding of the region.
