Event 21.11.17 | “Cleaner, Smarter, Cheaper: Responding to Opportunities in Europe’s Changing Energy System”
What do cheaper renewables, batteries and other flexibility options mean for the power sector in Europe? How do the rapid developments and price declines of the last few years change the outlook for the power sector as a whole?
Please join the European Climate Foundation, E3G, RAP, BPIE and WWF to discuss these questions and many more, at the launch of their new report in the Energy Union Choices series.
Tuesday 21 November, 09:00 – 12:00
Stanhope Hotel, Rue du Commerce 9, 1000 Brussels
The report finds that, while the Clean Energy Package takes an important step in the right direction, additional policies to drive the smart retirement of inflexible baseload generation, alongside a step-change in demand-side flexibility would permit a breakthrough in the pace of change, allowing renewables to form up to 63% of the European electricity sector by 2030.
ECF CEO Laurence Tubiana and Commission Vice President Maros Šefčovič will open the event, after which an expert panel with Claude Turmes MEP and speakers from REstore, Ørsted (formerly DONG Energy), WWF and DG Energy will discuss the report’s findings and its policy implications.
