EMP-E 2021: Re-Energising Sustainable Transitions in Europe

Energy System Modelling, Methods & Results to support the European Green Deal

26th – 28th October 2021
EMP-E 2021 is an online conference

The annual EMP-E conference brings together Europe’s energy modelling community over a three-day period in a forum for deep exchange of research and modelling practice and varied discussions. The event will feature a balanced mix of high-level panel discussions and interactive workshop sessions to enable a peer-reviewed digest of models and policy insights for the transformation of the European energy system. The EMP-E 2021 conference will be a forum for exchange among researchers and modelling teams from across Europe; from H2020 projects, representatives of the European Commission as well as partners from industry and civil society.

EMP-E was created in 2017 and has since been organised on a yearly basis by the H2020 Energy Modelling group – a group of projects funded by the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Programme. This year, the event is coordinated by SENTINEL – the Sustainable Energy Transitions Laboratory, with support of NAVIGATE, SPINE, WHY, OpenENTRANCE, AURES, PLANET, Plan4RES and MAGNITUDE.

Days and themes

  • Day 1: Policies and Targets: Targets for 2030 and 2050, COP26, biodiversity and environment policies and aiding post COVID recovery
  • Day 2: Linking Sectors and Technologies: The building sector, smartness of energy systems, digital input and technological diffusion 
  • Day 3: Modelling-specific issues: How to promote better transparency, collaboration across modelling teams, how to capture (model) social and behavioural change


All projects have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme.
