The Atlantic Workshop on Energy and Environmental Economics (AWEEE) is a biennial scientific meeting, born in 2004, which is organized by Economics for Energy with the collaboration of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The workshop has become an important outlet for the discussion and debate on state-of-the-art research on energy and environmental issues, with a limited number of participants who come from all around the world. The AWEEE combines keynote lectures on specific topics by prestigious academics with the presentation of research by invited speakers and by other participants through an open call for papers.
The AWEEE takes place in the pleasant island of A Toxa, in the Northwestern Spanish area of Galicia. In its sixth edition the workshop will deal with Frontiers in the Economics of Energy Efficiency, including keynote lectures by Massimo Filippini (ETH and USI) and Richard Schmalensee (MIT) and invited presentations by Anna Alberini (Maryland), Antoine Dechezlepretre (LSE), Denny Ellerman (EUI), Ibon Galarraga (BC3), Kenneth Gillingham (Yale), Robert Hahn (Oxford), Michael Hanemann (ASU), Frank Jotzo (ANU), José M.
