Energy Union: Clean Energy Industrial Forum on Renewable Energy

Today, the second High-level meeting of the renewable energy section of the Clean Energy Industrial Forum takes place at the Berlaymont building, chaired by Miguel Arias Cañete, Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy. The Commission is committed to having the EU becoming world leader on renewable energy and of placing Europe on the right path towards a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy. The clean energy transition is an important opportunity for European industries. Last year the Commission established a Clean Energy Industrial Forum with action on renewable energy, electricity storage and batteries, and construction sector in order to make recommendations on how to strengthen the industrial basis and the EU value chain for renewable energy technologies. The Forum brings together 30 CEOs and industry leaders, including from Small and Medium Enterprises, as well as representatives from international organisations. Its objective is to identify new actions and initiatives for key sectors and segments of the value chain in which EU industries need to maintain and step up their competitiveness at global scale. During this 2nd meeting, the members of the Forum will review progress made on competitiveness, research and innovation, and trade in the context of the recently adopted regulatory framework for renewables. They will also focus on discussing financing possibilities for the next decade. For more details about the event, see website.
