Innovation is at the heart of the Energy Union project. A year after the publication of the European Commission framework strategy for the Energy Union, the Jacques Delors Institute organised a conference in Brussels on February 25, 2016 on the first year of the Energy Union.

How can innovation speed-up the european energy transition, make it more profitable for european businesses and workers? 

This synthesis by Thomas Pellerin-Carlin, Research Fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, explores the way through which innovation can speed-up the energy transition: 

A paradigm shift from ‘technological products’ towards ‘innovative services’
New ways to create value lead to new ways to innovate
Innovation is at the heart of the competitiveness of european businesses
Consumers are key players of innovation and of the energy transition
The public sector has a major role to play to boost innovation
