Final Full Paper Submission

Once authors get the final notification about papers, they are invited to prepare the full final version. All papers presented at EEM 2023 will be published in IEEE Xplore. For that reason, upon final notification about the accepted papers, authors are invited to resubmit the full paper by 14th of May 2023 using the IEEE PDF eXpress to ensure compatibility with IEEE Xplore's formatting guidelines. The final version of accepted papers for oral presentations at the conference need to be prepared as follows. 

1. Check the Results of the Review and take reviewer comments into account. Please re-check your paper to match the EEM23 paper template (found from right side of this page) for Headings, Style, Figure/Table caption (positioning and style), and Reference style. Remember to add your names and other information, that was not in the blind review version.

2. Before creating your PDF, please add the following copyright notice to the footer (left align) of the first page of your document. For most authors, the last option is the correct one:

  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S: Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 989-8-3503-1258-4/23/$31.00 ©2023 Crown
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 979-8-3503-1258-4/23/$31.00 ©2023 European Union
  • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 979-8-3503-1258-4/23/$31.00 ©2023 IEEE

As a reference, you can use the paper template (please check the copyright notice in the footer of the first page only) or browse the IEEE Xplore database for previous conference publications.

3. Create a PDF version of your paper using the IEEE PDF eXpress tool. In order to generate the PDF-file, proceed to the link:


If you are a first-time user, click on the Create an Account and enter the conference ID code 58374X. Then enter your email address and set a password.

If you are already registered in PDF eXpress (previous conference submissions via PDF eXpress) then login, enter your password and enter the conference ID 58374X.

For each conference paper you co-authored, click on “create new title”, enter the title of the paper and upload your Word file. Upon successful completion, you will receive an email with your converted PDF-file or in the case that an incompatibility was detected, a report detailing why it failed will be sent to you. In this case, please correct the indicated problems and resubmit the Word document.

4. Please make sure to complete and sign the IEEE Copyright Form.

The IEEE Copyright Form can be signed directly through ConfTool and the button to start the process (named: Electronic Copyright Form) is located right below the button for Submission of the Final Version. Please check the figure below:

To sign the form, please click on the button: Electronic Copyright Form and on the next page click on the button: Submit Contribution Details to IEEE to Start the Signing Process.

5. Use the ConfTool conference system to upload your full paper PDF (created with IEEE PDF eXpress) and IEEE Copyright Form PDF. Therefore, login to your user account and upload the files in the section: Your Submissions.

6. All papers submitted to EEM23 must be presented to the audience through oral presentation. Time for each paper presentation should not exceed: 8 minutes presentation and 4 minutes for discussion/questions. You may use EEM23 presentation template (on the right) or your own templates. 


Papers are being invited in the following or related technical track topic areas:

  • Operation of energy and carbon markets: modelling, simulation, and analysis

Appropriate tools are required for analysis and assessment of energy systems and markets. This category encompasses topics such as technical and economic modelling of energy markets and systems, model uncertainty, analysis of energy price evolution, portfolio management, carbon market etc.

  • Market integration of renewable energy sources

Increasing the share of renewable energy sources in European energy systems presents a multitude of present and future challenges. Approaches and solutions will be presented and discussed – e.g., decarbonisation of the power sector, security and flexibility of supply, integration of regional electrical energy markets, demand side management, economic aspects of climate change etc.

  • Infrastructure development and management

Integrating the European Energy Markets as well as the expansion of renewable energies requires infrastructure development and management. This comprises topics such as grid expansion, interconnections, ancillary services, congestion management, trading imbalances, investment analyses, transmission and distribution asset management, pricing models, incentives for investments, etc.

  • Technical advances, new services, and market actors in integrated energy systems and communities

Energy communities offer a democratic approach to energy system decentralization and decarbonization. Of particular interest are energy communities empowered by localized generation of clean electricity and/or heat, as well as those involving some type of energy storage. This category addresses technical topics related to the operations, planning and design of integrated community energy systems composed by dispersed resources, including microgrids and electrical islands. At the same time, it is relevant to depict novel business and ownership models that will help accelerate the change to a decentralized paradigm, as well as new local market structures, and emerging actors. Lastly, this topic welcomes contributions related to the governance structures of energy collectives, including related policy challenges.

  • E-mobility and storage technologies

The recent advancements in the E-mobility segment will drastically affect the energy sector. This category includes the analysis of electric vehicle charging profiles and strategies, including of bidirectional charging, and assessment of impacts and benefits on distribution grids (e.g., vehicle charging flexibility as a grid resource).

In terms of stationary energy storage, the following topics of innovative business cases, emerging market trends & applications, challenges to the development of energy storage, energy storage market design and regulatory frameworks, etc. will be considered.

  • Energy citizenship and energy justice

End-users are expected to assume an increasingly central role in Europe’s energy transition, whether by actively aiming for energy efficiency, by producing and storing renewable energy locally, or by adjusting their consumption patterns to the power system’s constraints. At the same time many consumers lack the information, or the resources needed to engage in behavioural change or in different types of energy investments. This category welcomes studies addressing energy citizenship, energy justice, energy poverty, as well as methods and tools to empower the role of the citizens in the energy transition.

  • Energy and climate policy and regulation

Energy policy addresses the economic, environmental, political, planning, and social aspects of energy supply. This category includes topics that confront decisionmakers, corporate planners, managers, consultants, politicians, and researchers. Climate policy focuses on the de-carbonisation of the power sector, economics of climate change and stakeholder vision on the future power system. Technical and economic efficiency is essential for a modern electrical energy system. Options such as cogeneration, production and demand management, as well as policies and analyses will be presented and discussed.

  • Hydrogen economy - technologies and strategies

Hydrogen is currently enjoying unprecedented political and business momentum, with the number of policies and projects expanding rapidly. The related topics include, but are not limited to: Environmental Aspects and Impact of Hydrogen Energy Technologies, Economics of Hydrogen Energy Applications, Hydrogen in Smart Grids, Hydrogen Storage & Infrastructure, Market and Deployment of hydrogen technologies, Hydrogen Valleys, Power-to-X (P2X) products and applications etc.
