Meeting with Maroš Šefčovič
(Vice President of the European Commission, in charge of Energy Union)
Wednesday, June 29, 2016 – from 2 pm to 3 pm
Brussels, Steigenberger Wiltcher’s Hotel.
Last year, VP Šefčovič adopted on behalf of the European Commission the ambitious “Framework Strategy for a Resilient Energy Union with a Forward-Looking Climate Change Policy”, which created a new momentum to bring about the transition to a low-carbon, secure and competitive economy.
One year on, after decisively contributing to the successful conclusion of the COP21 Paris’s climate agreement, the Commission is working hard on implementation.
It is translating the vision set out in the Energy Union Strategy into a solid legislative framework, suggesting a pragmatic approach to Energy Union.
Besides, an integrated Research, Innovation and Competitiveness Strategy is under preparation, which will reinforce the synergies between energy, transport, industrial and digital innovation.
The making of the Energy Union: which achievements up to now? What are the main criticalities for its successful implementation? On which priorities should the EU focus efforts and resources? Is Europe doing enough?
