The European Parliament and the Council are discussing the proposals presented in November 2016 by the European Commission on the energy and climate targets for the next decade. Renewable energies continue to be in the limelight, since they can help to decarbonise the energy sector, increase security of supply and provide new business opportunities for the European economy.
However, the two European co-legislators expressed different positions in the past few months.
This online debate will discuss three of the most contentious issues:
- RES target level for 2030 – how ambitious shall Europe be?
- Integration of RES into the electricity market – is priority dispatch still needed? is the current market design providing fair treatment to RES?
- Cross-border participation in support schemes – do Member States think beyond narrow national interests when promoting the deployment of RES?
These and other questions will be addressed by a high level panel made up of academics, representatives of the institutions and professional practitioners.
An interactive Q&A section with the audience will follow the panel debate.
- Nicolò Rossetto, Research Associate at FSR
- Mario Ragwitz, Professor at the Fraunhofer ISI
- Alberto Pototschnig, Director of ACER
- Dirk Hendricks, Senior Policy Advisor at European Renewable Energies Federation (EREF)
