Informal networking event for students and young professionals organised by IAEE`s student representatives.
Venue: RTE Showroom in La Défense (15 min from Conference Venue – Palais des Congrès)
Workshop is limited to a maximum of 30 participants.
In a context of steadily rising greenhouse gas emissions, the French Transmission System Operator (Réseaux de Transport de l’Electricité) invites young professionals to work on different strategies and scenarios to deeply reduce man-made emissions by 2050, with a multi-dimensional approach. Five systemic challenges have been identified:
Participants will choose to address one in the above challenges in advance of the conference and teams will be formed upon registration of the participants – one team of about five young professionals per challenge. Teams will be encouraged to be in touch before the conference in order to start working on their proposal. In order to foster the debate, it is advised to provide a preliminary description of the group’s plan of action (up to four pages maximum) that would be free to evolve during the challenge. During the workshop, participants will be come up with their final proposal to address said challenge and share it with the rest of the group.
Original and creative proposals both in form and content are encouraged.
A cash prize will be awarded to the best proposal and a cocktail reception will follow the workshop.

About: The Meuse/Haute Marne Underground Research Laboratory is a laboratory located 500 metres underground in Bure in the Meuse département.
It allows study of the geological formation in order to evaluate its capacity for deep geological repository of high-level and long-lived medium-level radioactive waste. It is managed by the National Agency for the Management of Radioactive Waste or ANDRA.
Since radioactive waste needs to be safely stored for extreme lengths of time, the geology of the area is of utmost importance. Geologically, this site chiefly consists of Kimmeridgian claystone 500 metres underground in the Paris Basin. As of 2007, a 40 metre long tunnel had been completed at the 445 m underground level, while almost 500 m of tunnels have been excavated at the 490 m underground level. Further extensions were built between 2007 and 2009 and more are scheduled.

Guided tour: A global approach to sustainable development
A guided tour by one of Citéco's mediators to discuss the notions of externality and the challenges of the economy in preserving the environment.

We are in the midst of an historic energy transition with global consequences. How does a layperson begin to develop an understanding of the decisions that continue to shape our economies, the environment and geopolitics? Where does an instructor begin when teaching a basic course on energy? These tasks are even more daunting in today’s era of fake news and changing political norms.
This course assembles ‘10 Big Ideas’ that are foundational to appreciating the complexities of today’s energy issues. Drawing on economics, politics and geopolitics, history and the applied sciences, the course outlines a series of simple cross-disciplinary narratives which provide a basis for thinking about these energy challenges.
Learning Outcomes: Participants will consider and evaluate 10 big ideas on energy which form the core of this course. The ideas are useful in considering such questions as:
Participants will also have the opportunity to propose and discuss other ideas which they consider to be critical.
Target Audience: The course should be of interest to young energy professionals, academics teaching courses in energy economics and related fields, individuals working in regulatory and policy environments, and those who want to refresh their understanding of key energy ideas. Members of the business community who would benefit from a ‘big picture’ approach might also wish to attend.
