Europe faces a number of complex and interrelated challenges to its energy policy: managing the transition to long-term decarbonisation; violence and instability in supplier countries; insufficient attention given to energy efficiency measures; and technical barriers to greater energy integration across the continent. This workshop aims to explore some of the key issues and challenges facing the future of the Energy Union in the context of the new UK government.
