The négaWatt association is a non-governmental French think tank working for an ambitious energy transition.
The négaWatt association is a non-governmental French think tank involving around twenty experts in energy issues with strong field experience and complementary skills. Established in 2001, it is supported by more than 1,400 individual members.
Its main purpose is to recommend solutions on energy demand and supply to implement an energy transition in France, reducing as much as possible all the detrimental risks and impacts of the national energy system (greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, resource depletion, energy poverty, nuclear risks, etc.).
Through applying the négaWatt approach to France – based on energy sufficiency, energy efficiency, and renewable sources – the organisation has developed an energy transition scenario for the country, which reaches 100% renewables and carbon neutrality by 2050.
The négaWatt Association is a non-profit organisation mostly funded by individual member fees, as well as contributions from benefactors, foundations, and NGOs.

The REKK Foundation for Regional Policy Co-operation in Energy and Infrastructure was formed in 2016, by the researchers of the Regional Centre of Energy Policy Research in Hungary, aiming to facilitate the formation of sustainable energy systems in Central Europe.
REKK Foundation has the goal to contribute to the formation of sustainable energy systems in Central Europe by providing a platform for open-ended, European-wide dialoge between the actors of the energy markets, including governments, regulators, business actors and consumers. Its primary activities include ensuring expert forums to present and discuss various energy policy initiatives and facilitating knowledge sharing about energy regulation and market trends through research and educational activities, to help providing strategic response to new challenges in energy markets.
