Capacity Building Seminar, Leipzig (Germany),
21-25 October 2006. This Climate
Technology Initiative (CTI) seminar is the
7th event in a series sponsored by the German
Agency. The seminar will focus on concrete
policies and projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
and on facilitating the sharing of experiences and
ideas among experts from central and eastern Europe,
former Soviet Union, Mongolia and selected OECD
countries. It will bring together participants from
politics, business, non-governmental organisations,
research institutes and think tanks. CTI is one of
international collaborative energy technology programmes. To
learn more, visit CTI's
Cars with Less Fuel - IEA Workshop, Paris
(France), 23-24 October 2006 (note
changed dates). The goal of this
workshop is to identify technologies that will
less fuel consumption for cooling motor vehicles.
It will place special emphasis on improvements
offering benefits that do not appear in conventional
fuel economy tests. Visit
Seminar on Energy and the Forest Products Industry,
Rome (Italy), 30-31 October 2006. Organised jointly
by IEA, WCBSD, ICFPA, FAO, UNECE and ITTO, this
seminar will focus on energy
and the forest products industry, identifying
challenges and the impact of new energy policies.
It will aim at better
insight into the place of forestry products
in evolving energy scenarios and how
can co-operate so that policies better
integrate them in a sustainable
manner, at national,
regional and global levels. Visit IEA's website.
Workshop Coal-to-Liquids - an alternative oil
supply? IEA Headquarters,
Paris (France), 2 November 2006. Oil
supply security and price concerns have led to a
renewed interest in coal as an alternative feedstock
for the production of transport fuels and chemicals.
Through coal-conversion technologies such as coal-to-liquids
(CTL), the world’s vast coal resources could
become an important alternative to crude oil. Organised
by the IEA Coal Industry Advisory Board (CIAB),
this workshop will examine the possible impact
on supply security for coal itself and on its price.
CO2 emissions issues and policy
responses will be addressed. More information and
invitations to this
event can be requested from Brian
Ricketts at IEA.
Power Conference Time for Global Action, Canberra
(Australia), 6-7 November 2006. With support from
the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation and the International
Agency, the Australian
Greenhouse Office will host this conference. Its
objective will be to develop an internationally
consistent model to address excessive standby power
conference will be followed by an Australasian-focus
Energy Efficiency (E3) Standby Power Conference on
7-8 November, featuring a proposal to regulate
standby power in all home entertainment products.
Pioneering mandatory plans
will be announced by
Australia and New Zealand. See IEA's website for
information on both events.
Annual Conference of the Air Infiltration and
Centre (AIVC), Lyon (France), 20-22 November
2006 (note changed
dates). This conference is organised
by the AIVC,
which is part of the IEA Programme on Energy Conservation
in Buildings & Community Systems (ECBCS).
The event is taking place within the framework
of the 4th European Conference on Energy Performance
and Indoor Climate in Buildings (EPIC), which will
also feature a stream on other ECBCS research projects.
The EPIC gathering will target manufacturers, engineers,
designers, architects, researchers, real estate
managers, policy-makers and standardisation specialists. Click to
International Conference on Clean Coal Technologies
for our Future, Cagliari, Sardinia (Italy),

event will build on the success of its previous
May 2005 conference in Cagliari, taking
the debate underlying important decisions
the coal industry must take for our future.
