The Spain Member Committee organises its annual event focused on two panels in order to analyse relevant issues on the international agenda. The “POLITICAL ECONOMY OF ENERGY PRICES” panel will analyze the interactions between political and economic drivers and their implications for both producers and consumers. The “ENERGY IN THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS” round table will try to assess the implications of the SDGs agenda on sustainability and energy policies at a global level as well as for traditional donors and for the Global South. Participants will also evaluate the conclusions of the XXIII World Energy Congress and the results of the last edition of the Spanish Energy Issues Monitor.
