Participants of Eurelectric's conference on 13 March in Brussels will discuss the Commission's 2030 proposals. Connie Hedegaard, Commissioner for Climate Action, will open the conference.
On 22 January 2014 the Commission proposed energy and climate objectives to be met by 2030. Through this proposals, this EU institution intends to send a strong signal to the market, encouraging private investment in new pipelines and electricity networks or low-carbon technologies.
The conference of Eurelectric will bring together the power sector with other stakeholders to discuss the strengths of the Commission approach - but also some improvements that could be made, and some key questions which remain unanswered.
The conference is timed shortly before EU heads of government meet to debate 2030 and adopt a common position. The Council is expected to consider the framework at its spring meeting on 20-21 March 2014.
