CaFFEET’15: Utility response to climate change
CaFFEET (California France Forum on Energy Efficiency Technologies) is an annual conference organized by the Office for Science and Technology at the Embassy of France in the United States, EDF, PRIME and French Tech Hub. Its aim is to promote the exchange of technical and scientific knowledge in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency between two major low-carbon economies: France and California.
CaFFEET’15 proposes to address the challenges and opportunities related to the integration of an increasing share of renewable electricity sources in the energy mix. State-of-the-art technologies and innovative solutions, as well as their effectiveness on renewable integration, will be discussed within panels of world-renowned experts and start-ups in this domain.
Exactly 2 months after CaFFEET’15, France will be hosting and presiding COP21 “Paris 2015”, the biggest climate conference to date. The 2015 COP21 conference will be crucial, as it needs to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. Aligned with the COP21 agenda, CaFFEET’15 is a great way to prepare and rehearse for the Paris event.
