About us

With the formation of Energy Climate House (ECH), CEPS has established an independent centre of excellence within its premises aimed at strengthening its work on energy and climate change. Created at the initiative of CEPS Chairman Edmond Alphandéry, Energy Climate House provides a pan-European and policy-oriented perspective. 

In carrying out its activities, CEPS Energy Climate House is guided by a commitment to four essential principles:

  • Complete independence
  • Inclusiveness in soliciting participants, and therefore open to all stakeholders who have an interest in discussing these challenges
  • Policy-relevant and (policy) demand-driven
  • European in outlook, against a global background

The Scientific Advisory Committee advises CEPS Energy Climate House on its activities. It comprises eminent personalities with a scientific background, appointed in their own right. Click here for a list of the members.

The new initiative intends to fill a gap that exists in the field of energy markets in Europe where many excellent centres operate, but they generally work in a national context”, CEPS Chairman Edmond Alphandéry said on the occasion of the launch at the 2nd CEPS Ideas Lab on 26 February 2015. 

The need for such an initiative was addressed by Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President for Energy Union in his speech at the Ideas Lab: "I also very much welcome the setting into place of CEPS Energy Climate House – we need such a venture to sustain momentum on the important energy and climate challenges ahead of us."

CEPS Energy Climate House is supported by:

  • EDF
  • Iberdrola
  • Enedis
  • ERG
  • Enel
  • ExxonMobil

CEPS Energy Climate House also benefits of the expertise and support of MISTRA (The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research) as Research Co-operation Partner.
