ENTRACTE Workshop in the heart of stylish MilanFebruary 27, 2015
On February 17, 2015 the ENTRACTE consortium held a very successful and fruitful “Workshop on Policy Interactions and Overlapping Policies”. The event was hosted by project partner Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) in its premises in Milan
During the one day workshop it was discussed how climate and energy policies interact and how policy portfolios which comprehensively address these complexities need to be designed. The workshop contained four sessions related to the project research themes, namely “Environmental Policy, Innovation and the EU‐ETS”, “Environmental Policies, Energy Policies and Rebound”, “Environmental Policy, Competitiveness and Trade” and “Interactions in the EU climate and energy policies: Lessons learned and lessons to learn”. Each session was opened with the presentation of an invited speaker.
Margaret Taylor, Karen Turner, Carolyn Fischer and Peter Vis gave insights into “Retrospective review, innovation and appliance standards”, “International spillover and rebound effects from increased energy efficiency in Germany”, “Strategic subsidies for green goods” and “EU ETS: a decade of co-existence”. Key outcomes of the workshop on lessons learned from theoretical and empirical analysis in the past 2.5 years were extensively discussed and they framed further project steps towards the final conference to be held in Brussels on September 25, 2015.
