ME3 – Meeting on Energy and Environmental Economics

Abstract submissions extended until July 16

It is a great honour to announce the 4th Meeting on Energy and Environmental Economics – ME3 organized by the Portuguese Association of Energy Economics (APEEN) and the Research Centre in Governance, Competitiveness and Public Policy (GOVCOPP) that will be held at DEGEIT at the University of Aveiro, on 21 and 22 September, 2017

Conference details
As it has been in the past two years, the ME3 is an international meeting that aims at sharing experiences and results by the Scientific and Business community whose interests are the Economics of Energy and Environment.

The event will have as usual scientific sessions and an afternoon of presentations/round tables with municipalities, whose representatives will discuss the theme: “Are energy and environmental efficiency policies making the difference “in greening” or it is still missing something? What has already been done and what could be done additionally.”

In addition to the general topics of energy and environmental economics, this year’s meeting has a special focus on “green” municipalities or cities, and on the economic and environmental impact, this “greening” can bring. In this sense, we will have two special sessions with representatives of municipalities and regional agencies that will tell us about their experiences and / or expectations about energy, water or waste behaviours at municipal and regional level.

Important dates:

  • Paper submission: 16th July 2017
  • Communication of acceptance: 20th July 2017
  • Deadline for early registration: 30th July 2017 (mandatory for presenters)
  • Final program availability: 28th July 2017
  • Final registration possibility: 15th September 2017
