Brussels, 19 February 2019 – The European Energy Transition : a year ahead of the twenties


10:00 > 15:00

Pascal Lamy, President emeritus of the Jacques Delors Instiute, will give a keynote at the launch of the book on the energy transition, to which he contributed with Thomas Pellerin-Carlin, Head of the Jacques Delors Energy Centre.

What are the energy topics that will mark the next decade? How are the targets of at least 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions, of at least 32% of Renewables and of 32,5% increase in energy efficiency set to shape the next decade? What are the institutions that we need and how will Brexit impact the Energy Union? Will Horizon Europe take the innovation imperative from promise to practice? Will Europe continue to benefit from its high standard of security of supply? And will COP 25, taking place at the end of 2019, will see a credible clean energy oriented Europe in the lead?

This event, co-organised by FSR, Bruegel, and the Jacques Delors Foundation, will see high level speakers present their views on these topics. A book on the same topic will be launched the same day, to which Pascal Lamy and Thomas Pellerin-Carlin have contributed.
