Economic research in energy efficiency – ERGON

ERGON is a consortium created to explore in depth the multiple aspects related to energy efficiency economics and policies. 

ERGON is a consortium created in March 2014 by four European research institutions, CEPE-ETH; Economics for Energy; FEEM and ZEW, to explore in depth the multiple aspects related to energy efficiency economics and policies. Its objective is to carry out collaborative, state-of-the-art, economic research on energy efficiency issues, to compile and gather data on these matters as a basis for sound results and policy advice in the area, and to organize academic exchanges and events around these rich topics. 

ERGON is specialized in the economic analysis of energy efficiency matters, with a special focus on the study of the so-called energy efficiency paradoxes and of policies and strategies to promote energy efficiency. The participants in the research consortium have published empirical and theoretical papers on those issues and have participated in multiple research projects in this area. 

One of the main objectives of ERGON is to gather and produce data that can be used as a basis for collaborative research on the economic aspects of energy efficiency. We are particularly interested in developing databases that can cover heterogeneous countries and that can be employed to produce joint research.

The consortium is open to other international research partners and to the collaboration with public and private organizations. 

The consortium pays a special attention to scientific dissemination and social diffusion of research in the economics of energy efficiency through its periodic workshops and events.

ERGON is coordinated by four academics, from each of the founding research institutions who, together with a team of researchers, carry out the diverse activities of the consortium.

FEEM is a founding member of the ERGON Network and Massimo Tavoni is the FEEM team leader within the network.
