The European Energy Transition: A year ahead of the Twenties

This event will look at the most important issues related to energy for the next few years. The event will coincide with the launch of a book and online course on this topic.

Date: February 19, 2019, 10:00 am Topic: Energy & Climate

video & audio recordings

Keynote speech, Sessions I & II

Session III

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 new online course on ‘The European energy transition’ as well as a book on the same topic will be launched the same day.

Introduction

Susanne Nies, Managing Director Strategy & Communications, ENTSO-E

10:30-11:00

Keynote “The social and innovation dimension for the Energy Union of the 2020s” followed by Q&A - by videoconference

Pascal Lamy, President emeritus, Jacques Delors Institute

11:00-12:00

Roundtable: Institutions for the Energy Transition

Chair: Susanne Nies, Managing Director Strategy & Communications, ENTSO-E

Klaus-Dieter Borchardt, Deputy Director General, European Commission, DG ENER

Dirk Buschle, Deputy Director, Energy Community

Philip Lowe, former Director General, European Commission, DG ENER

Alberto Pototschnig, Director, European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER)

The European energy market gets larger and more integrated. The European electricity and gas sector increasingly extends beyond the EU (Brexit, ENTSO-E synchronization, Energy Community…). And European electricity markets are growing more complex and integrated. We see shorter timeframes and smaller actors in actions that have cross-border effects. What does that mean for the relevant institutions?

12:00-13:00

Roundtable: Decarbonization policies for net-zero emissions

Chair: Jean-Michel Glachant, Florence School of Regulation (FSR)

Jos Delbeke, Senior Adviser at the European Political Strategy Centre, European Commission and Former Director General at DG Climate Action, European Commission

Dolf Gielen, Director, IRENA

Georg Zachmann, Senior Fellow

To achieve the EU’s decarbonization targets effective climate policies need to be implemented at the EU and member states level. The discussed net zero emissions target of the proposed climate strategy will require measures that significantly go beyond the currently projected policies. Here we will discuss some policies that might be needed and what effects those might have.

13:00-13:45

Lunch

13:45-14:45

Roundtable: The new face of energy: new players, new topics, sectors coupling

Chair: Alicia Carrasco, CEO of OlivoENERGY

Olivier Corradi, Founder of Tomorrow, Data Scientist and Software Engineer

Rémy Garaude-Verdier, Head of European affairs, Enedis

Laurent Schmitt, Secretary-General, ENTSO-E

The energy transition is expected to imply a profoundly changing business landscape. The coupling of different energy services will allow to reap significant optimization gains. The increasing “smartness” of small suppliers and individual electricity consuming appliances will increase the number of “dispatchable” entities in the system dramatically. This can lead to the emergence of new platforms to optimize the interactions of this increasing number of players.

The European climate law needs a strong just transition fund

To deliver on the goals of the European climate law, the European Union needs finally to get coal out of its energy mix: the EU should quicken the pace of decarbonisation whilst delivering on its goal of social inclusion.
