On 5 April 2016 the JRC presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform. This beta platform is conceived to fill the gap opened by scattered data and fragmented knowledge resulting from a rapidly growing energy efficiency market. It is expected to be both a one-stop shop for information retrieval and a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities.
9th International Conference on Energy Efficiency in Domestic Appliances and Lighting – EEDAL’17
EEDAL'17 will provide a unique forum to discuss and debate the latest developments in energy and environmental impact of residential appliances and lighting, heating and cooling equipment, ICT equipment, smart meters and smart grids, consumer behaviour, the policies and programmes adopted and planned, as well as the technical and commercial advances in the dissemination and penetration of technologies and solutions, particularly: energy efficient residential appliances, consumer electronics and ICT, heating and cooling equipment and lighting.
The three-day conference will include plenary sessions where key representatives of governments and international organisations, manufacturers and academia will present their views and programmes to advance energy efficiency in residential appliances and lighting, for example, through international co-operation on product information and eco-design requirements. Parallel sessions on specific themes and topics will allow in-depth discussions among participants. The conference will also host ad-hoc workshops to review and advance international collaboration and will provide opportunities strengthen existing and promote new initiatives and partnerships.
EEDAL'17 is organised by the California Plug Load Research Center (CalPlug) at the University of California, Irvine with the scientific supervision by the European Commission Joint Research Centre.
