“The transparent exchange of information and opinions on all political, economic, and technological aspects of energy policy is crucial in the legislative process.
The European Energy Forum is the place, open to all MEPs, private and public stakeholders, where this fruitful exchange happens”.
Jerzy Buzek – MEP, President of the EEF
Why do we exist?
Because open information is key in policymaking
Our Forum provides Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) with data necessary to understand the energy issues discussed in their legislative work.
As they get an overall comprehension of energy-related topics, including climate and transport, they are able to form their opinion autonomously and make informed decisions when shaping political solutions for a successful sustainable transition.
What do we provide?
We foster a cross-party, cross-sectoral, multi-stakeholder discussion
We offer MEPs an opportunity to reciprocally exchange with private and public energy stakeholders as well as representatives of the European Commission and other institutions involved in energy.
This permanent dialogue is established through a variety of high-level activities:
- Energy Debates
- Briefing Sessions
- Educational Visits
All MEPs and all sectors of the energy landscape are invited to participate and discussions are held under the Chatham House rule. This guarantees objectivity and openness, resulting in valuable debates.
Activities are chaired by the President of our Forum, or by another MEP. The European Commission also participates actively in every discussion.
How do we operate?
We put openness, inclusiveness, neutrality and balance at the core of all our activities
For more than 25 years, we ensure the exchange we promote is open, transparent, science- and technology-based:
- All MEPs and interested parties are equally welcome
- We discuss all political and technological perspectives across the energy reality
- We develop a programme of discussions based on the EU policy agenda & priorities
- The EEF does not take any position
