Friends of Europe’s 2018 Energy & Climate Summit

Friends of Europe’s 2018 Energy & Climate Summit


A landscape of division and transformation lies on the horizon

Although 2018 is a decisive year for climate action and cooperation, signs of division hamper the global process. The writing of the Paris Rulebook and the release of the special report of the IPCC will determine the pathways to take and the investments to make. The energy landscape is being transformed, and disruptive technologies articulated by digitalisation allow improved efficiency and sustainability. It is time for Europe to outline a new industrial policy for decarbonisation, with long-term ambition and targets sufficiently bold to lead the transition.

- How can we ensure countries turn objectives into ambitious policies and long-term decarbonisation plans?

- How do we remove the roadblocks for scaling to market? How will technological advancements transform the energy landscape of tomorrow?

- What should we expect from the EU long-term strategy and how can we make sure it takes into account the various industry sectors?

This high-level annual summit will bring together an exciting mix of high-level speakers and a few hundred participants, including policymakers, academics, business leaders, civil society representatives and members of the international press from Europe and beyond.
