European Energy and Climate Policy in a New Global Context

Europe has set ambitious energy and climate policy goals, accelerated the expansion of its internal energy market, and introduced the European Trading Scheme (ETS) as an environmental instrument to fight climate change. But the various national interests within and outside the European Union continue to be a challenge for the joint energy and climate policy approach.

Which energy policy plans do the new governments in Great Britain, France and Germany have after the elections? Which impulses does the COP 23 in Bonn give in order to further strengthen the Paris Agreement? And what do other countries contribute in order to support a sustainable global transformation of the energy systems?

These are some of the topics we will discuss with global energy experts a few days after COP 23. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Energy Day 2017 on November 21 in Berlin!

Please register here until November 14.

Topics of the Energy Day 2017:

  • Implications of COP 23 on global energy policies
  • Global Energy and Climate Policy Dynamics: Facing New Realities
  • Estonian Presidency of the EU Council: Will Estonia lead Europe into the Digital Energy Age?
  • EU-Visions: How much of Europe will determine tomorrow`s Energy and Climate Policy?
