EU Energy Summit

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Tuesday, 05 March 2019 09:15 - 18:00

Venue: Egmont Palace

WHY A NEW SUMMIT ?  

In order for Europe to be in line with the Paris Agreement, the EU will have to surpass the targets, rules and guidelines it has imposed by adopting the «Clean energy for all Europeans » package by 2050. 

How can Europe succeed and surpass these targets and how far should it go? 

The draft EU long term GHG reduction Strategy unveiled in November 2018 by the European Commission sets out 8 different scenarios for the EU by 2050. Before the finalisation of this Strategy in 2020, it is now up to the Member States, the European Parliament, the industry and civil society to discuss, provide input on the feasibility of the strategy and determine which goals are achievable. 

Similarly, EU industries will now need to translate the European objectives into sectorial goals and identify the technological and policy levers to reach them. This will certainly require a more transversal approach including cross-sector cooperation and coordination.

 

These questions will be at the forefront of the European energy and climate policy agenda, and are therefore at the heart of the 5th EU Energy Summit’s debates, on 5 March 2019.

At the same time EU energy security and sovereignty are more and more disputed in a context of geopolitical tensions. And while digitalisation of the energy system is a game-changer, which offers major benefits to citizens and businesses, the increasing frequency of energy related cyber-attacks has the potential to become a major threat for the security and stability of the EU energy system, and needs to be further addressed. 

 

HOW WE DO THIS

As in the previous 4 EU Energy Summits, this 5th edition will maintain the high quality of the debates as well as the high number of participants (an audience of almost 500). We will continue to  bring together representatives from national and European institutions, high-level political decision-makers and industrial leaders, civil society and the media, for a day of public discussion and debate.
