Energy Research Institute (ERI/NDRC), which was established in 1980, is a national research organization conducting comprehensive studies on China’s energy issues. ERI’s research mainly focuses on the fields of energy economics, energy efficiency, energy environment & climate change and renewable energy. In recent years, ERI has recently accomplished around hundreds of projects related to energy strategy, medium and long term energy planning, energy policies, energy efficiency, climate change and renewable energy development as well as energy consultation projects.

Call for Papers – The deadline for paper submission is February 1st, 2014.
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 is:

  • Climate change – mitigation and adaptation
  • Economics of low-carbon technologies
  • Co-linkages of climate, air pollution and energy security
  • Energy and economic growth in Asia and other emerging economies
  • Energy, water and land

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

Submission of papers
Full papers or long abstracts (minimum 1000 words) in .pdf version should be submitted online at IEW 2014 before February 1st, 2014
Please note that paper selection has become increasingly competitive in recent years. Submissions that fully describe a complete analysis are most likely to be accepted. In particular, when submitting a long abstract, please ensure that the study and results are sufficiently described to allow comparison with full paper submissions. Each person can present only one selected paper, although multiple submissions are allowed. Please kindly fill in one online form for each paper.

Program Committee
The selection of submitted papers and long abstracts is directed and made by the IEW Program Committee, which includes, among others, the IEW co-directors and the 2014 co-organisers:

  • Geoffrey Blanford, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
  • Massimo Tavoni, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM)
  • Bob van der Zwaan, Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN)
  • Jiang Kejun, Energy Research Institute (ERI-NDRC)
  • Xu Xiangyang, China University of Mining Technology (CUMT)
