The OECD Green Talks Live webinar series brings world experts together on pressing environmental issues for a global audience. These free webinars are open to the general public and participants are welcome to pose questions during the Q&A segment. Video recordings of our Green Talks are made available online afterwards.
Register for an upcoming webinar or watch the video recordings of our past webinars below.
up next: Leveraging the smart grid to optimise energy consumption
When: Thursday 15 March 2018 - 5 pm (Paris time) / 11am (EST)
Households typically cannot observe the price or the amount of electricity that they consume in real-time, so that they do not have the basis to make well-informed decisions about their electricity consumption.
Can providing information help consumers to reduce their environmental footprint? The roll-out of smart electricity meters, which enable real-time feedback on electricity consumption to residential consumers, can help answer this question.
Join visiting Senior Economist Nic Rivers to discuss recent OECD findings on the role of real-time electricity feedback in reducing consumption.
Duration: 1 hour (Presentation of 20-30 minutes followed by Q&A)
Where: The convenience of your computer

Taxing Energy Use: Reforming energy tax systems to achieve environmental goals
With almost no emissions from energy use priced at levels required to keep global temperature increases below 2 degrees Celsius, there is still considerable scope, and an urgent need, to improve the use of taxation to reduce pollution and combat climate change.
How do energy and carbon taxes differ across countries, different fuels and sectors? What should be done to reduce emissions and reach global climate goals at minimum cost?
Environmental tax economists from the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration discussed the key findings from the upcoming OECD publication, Taxing Energy Use 2018, which measures the magnitude and coverage of energy and carbon taxes in 42 OECD and G20 countries and provides a first appreciation of changes in energy and carbon taxes over time.
