| Researchers and practitioners from countries around the world are invited to submit original papers with new and innovative results on scientific, technical and practical experience on the economics of energy and climate systems. As is customary for the IEW, papers should be quantitative and rigorous.
A (non-exclusive) list of potential conference topics is:
1) Reaching net-zero emissions: modelling the transition away from fossil fuels; sectoral modelling enhancements and linking NDCs with long-term decarbonisation strategies
2) SDGs: Modelling the interlinkage between energy systems and meeting sustainable development goals
3) Socioeconomic analysis of the energy transitions: employment, skills, health, investments, consumer bills, integrating behaviour in energy models
4) Emerging Markets: modelling future energy service demand and related material demand for the energy sector in transition
5) Technology insights: role of technologies in the energy transitions (e.g. CCUS and negative emission technologies, hydrogen, energy efficiency in demand and supply)
6) Managing power system transitions: addressing flexibility and system aspects for the integration of variable renewables ; market design; integrated modelling looking at future energy systems and dealing with short-term issues
7) Digitalisation and energy: analysing the impact of digital technologies on the future energy system
Selected papers will be presented and discussed in thematic and poster sessions, circulated during the meeting, and also posted on the meeting website.
