This year, the European Commission will present a series of key energy-related legislative proposals, including the FIT for 55 package and the Hydrogen and Gas Markets Decarbonisation Package.
This briefing will provide you with the background knowledge needed to confidently work on them:
  • How do wholesale electricity and gas markets in Europe as well as the EU carbon market function?
  • What is the role of energy markets and price signals in driving cost-effective deployment of renewables and other decarbonisation technologies and solutions?
  • How could a pan-European hydrogen market design and a market for guarantees of origin and green certificates be developed?
The session will be divided in 3 parts. Feel free to join us for any part, at any time, depending on your own agenda: we’ll be looking forward to welcoming you!
