CEG Researchers Present on Low-Carbon Cities, Microgrids, and More at Major European Energy Seminar

June 10th 2013

China Energy Group's Deputy Director Nan Zhou and Senior Research Associate John Romankiewicz attended the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ECEEE) Summer Study in Hyeres, France last week. Nan presented two papers, "Quantifying the Potential Impact of Energy Efficiency and Low Carbon Policies for China" and "Evaluating China's pilot low-carbon city initiative: national goals and local plans", while John presented the group's recent research on microgrids in a paper entitled "International Microgrid Assessment: Governance, INcentives,and Experience (IMAGINE)". John and Nan also presented at the poster session (pictured below) on the group's new tool for evaluating low-carbon eco-cities in China as well as a bottom-up study on residential end-use energy efficiency. ECEEE holds its principal summer study every other year, and held its first summer study focused on industrial energy last September in the Netherlands, where Bo Shen and Ali Hasanbeigi presented on industrial energy efficiency incentives and other topics. These summer studies not only allow European researchers to learn more about China Energy Group's work, but also allows the Group's researchers to learn about European best practices in buildings, industry, and equipment that may be useful to China in the future.
