The 34th edition of the International Energy Workshop (IEW) will be hosted by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in Abu Dhabi, on June 03–05, 2015.

The IEW is one of the leading conferences for the international energy modeling research community. In a world of environmental and economic constraints, energy modeling is an increasingly important tool for addressing the complexity of energy planning and policy making.
The IEW provides a venue for analysts to compare quantitative energy projections, to understand the reasons for diverging views of future energy developments, and to observe new trends in global energy production and consumption.

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy. IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, ocean, solar and wind energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity.

Call for Papers – The deadline for paper submission was February 1st, 2015
Researchers and practitioners in developed and developing countries are invited to submit original papers with new and innovative results on scientific or practical experiences on the economics of energy and climate change. As is customary for the IEW, papers should be quantitative and rigorous. A (non-exclusive) list of potential conference topics includes:

•    Climate change – mitigation and adaptation
•    Economics of renewable energy sources
•    Co-linkages of climate, air pollution and energy security
•    Energy and economic growth in emerging economies
•    Energy poverty alleviation

Selected papers will be presented and discussed in thematic sessions, circulated during the meeting and also posted on the meeting website.
