Charlemagne Building

gathering policy makers and experts on the ICT for Energy Efficiency field. Registration is required but free.

Following up on the ICT4EE 2009 High Level Event which aimed to accord visibility to the potential of ICTs in enabling energy efficiency, this  event aims to become a vehicle to drive progress in the transition to an energy-efficient and low-carbon economy following the terms of the “Recommendation C(2009) 7604” adopted by the European Commission on October 9th 2009 [1], see also “Mobilising Information and Communication Technologies to facilitate the transition to an energy-efficient, low-carbon economy”, European Commission Communication – COM(2009) 111 – Brussels, 12.3.2009

Through the Recommendation, the Commission calls on the ICT sector to agree on common methodologies for measuring energy consumption and carbon emissions by 2010.

And actually the conference provides a small contribution to the reduction of emissions:  Webstreaming will be provided, so you do not have to be there just to watch the speeches of the programme.
