2030 climate & energy framework: The need for mutually reinforcing policies

When: 16 October 2013, 9.00-14.00 (lunch included)

Where: European Parliament, Paul-Henri Spaak (PHS) Building, Room 5B1

Following the European Commission`s adoption of a Green Paper on "A 2030 framework for climate and energy policies" and the subsequent public consultation, the Commission is preparing more concrete proposals for the 2030 framework scheduled for the end of 2013.

Such a framework is an important opportunity to establish mutually reinforcing policies for energy efficiency, renewable energy and climate protection. This, in turn, will enable the transition to a sustainable energy system and make a meaningful contribution to global climate action: reducing resource and carbon use, increasing security of supply, boosting competitiveness and ensuring a job rich recovery. 

In this context, several questions arise:

  • What are the past successes and failures in realising the specific objectives of the three policies?
  • How can the EU improve synergistic interactions? 
  • How can a 2030 package help respond to the challenges of increasing energy costs, constrained public budgets and high unemployment, as well as to the global urgency for climate action? 

In order to provide some answers to these questions, Climate Action Network Europe (CAN-E), the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC) and the Coalition for Energy Savings invite you to a panel debate on a mutually reinforcing policy framework.
