Seminar: Charting a Green Energy Future for Europe

The seminar will explore and discuss the current state of EU energy policy as well as the different directions in which it could develop in the future. It is an opportunity for those working or interested in energy policy to add the European dimension to their knowledge base. The deadline for applications to take part in the seminar is June 24th. 

DATE: 6 - 7 September 2013
VENUE: Amazone Conference Centre, 10 rue de Meridian, 1210 Brussels

The program will be focused on a number of key policy areas in the field of energy that will be discussed with European experts working in this field. These will include, for example, current debates over the EU’s new energy and climate targets for 2030, an exploration of who/what will be the key drivers of future energy policy, the example of the German Energiewende (energy transition)—and what it means for the wider European context—as well as a discussion of the different energy mix scenarios. 

While discussing of the crucial policy fields for the EU’s future, the seminar will also give you the opportunity to meet and discuss with people working for various EU institutions or other Brussels-based organisations and to familiarise yourself with the European political debates around energy policy and the relevant Green actors. At the same time, of course, it is also the opportunity to meet many interesting new people, to discuss and share experiences.  

The seminar will take place in Brussels, on the 6th and 7th of September 2013. The working language will be English.
