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 wider context of Europe’s foreign and security policy challenges.

This event will be held under the Chatham House rule. This will be the first of three workshops on the Energy Union taking place in Brussels, London and Berlin. This conference is organised with the support of the European Climate Foundation.
