(The event is in French)
Starting from the principle that the least polluting energy is the one we do not consume/produce, the French association négaWatt proposes to rethink our vision of energy by relying on a three-step approach: sobriety, efficiency and renewables. “Producing negaWatts” means breaking with our (bad) habits by preferring energy sobriety to waste. It means seeking the best possible use of energy, rather than continuing to consume more and more. Energy sobriety is not a step backwards, it is simply a smarter use of energy. The negaWatt scenario traces the path to a desirable and sustainable energy future, and describes solutions to achieve it and thus charts a trajectory for running the French economy by 2050 solely on a 100% renewable energy mix and thus enabling carbon neutrality.
The négawatt approach is now the subject of European cooperation. Is it possible to apply it to the territory of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the bordering border territories, with which perspective?
The conference will be given by Benoît Lebot, member of the Compagnie des négawatts in France. Mr Lebot is also a specialist in public policies to combat climate change and energy transition. He has worked in France, in Europe and in several international bodies (United Nations, International Energy Agency and recently at the G20). The conference will be introduced by the Minister for Energy and Minister for Spatial Planning of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Mr Claude Turmes.
