Presentations of the Padova Conference

On 26th October 2023 the JP e3s conference "Fostering Changes in energy consuption: a pathway to demand reduction" took place in Padova (Italy). The event was a starting point to stimulate a scientific and interdisciplinary discussion about energy demand reduction, that will culminate in the writing and publication of a White Paper on the topic in early summer of 2024. The Conference was structured in 3 main sessions, corresponding to three different, but complementary, ways of addressing energy demand reduction. Here below are the presentations of each session:
