YPFP Brussels: Future developments in the energy sector: success story or failure?
The EU set the goal that by the year 2020 all member states should source 20 percent of their energy needs from renewable sources. The expansion of alternative energy production is helping to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and they are better for the environment. At the same time developments are still under way to ensure that wind, solar, biomass and other alternatives can generate a full and steady energy supply.
In our policy dialogue we wish to discuss the steps the EU takes to reach its renewable energy targets and look at climate and environmentally friendly energy initiatives in the US. How do the US and the EU address the challenge? What role does transatlantic cooperation play? What are examples the transatlantic community could look to for solutions?
· Dale Eppler, Councellor for Energy, Environment, Science and Technology, US Mission to the EU
· Jens Rohde Vice-Chair of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy in the European Parliament (tbc)
