The next Commission will play a decisive role with respect to the future of European energy policy.
This event is aimed to discuss these issues and to draw some first conclusions on what should be the next Commission’s energy priorities.

Session 1 will look at the challenges in delivering a cost-effective and competitive EU electricity system, and achieving the EU and Member States’ renewables targets whilst meeting the goals of competitiveness and energy security.

Session 2 will look at the role of gas – natural, biomethane, green and low-carbon – in the EU’s long-term energy system.

Session 3 will look at what will be the key infrastructure challenges moving forward, and what the next Commission will need to do to deal with them.

Session 4 will look at the challenges facing the EU’s competition policy to evolve and to meet the rapid changes taking place on EU energy markets.
