FSR joins the EU-China Energy Cooperation Platform in Beijing

FSR strengthens cooperation with China by joining the EU-China Energy Cooperation

Between 28th and 30th October, Jean-Michel Glachant, FSR Director and Ilaria Conti, Head of FSR Gas Area will participate in a series of events organised in the framework of the EU-China Energy Cooperation Platform in Beijing.

As part of the official EU delegation led by the Principal Adviser in the Directorate-General for Energy – Mr Tudor Constantinescu, prof. Glachant and Ms Conti will participate as panellists in a conference on the EU and Chinese energy markets and in a sequence of meetings with leading Chinese energy research institutes, energy companies and Chinese energy community.

In particular, the FSR representatives will present the EU’s perspective on the liberalisation and integration of the electricity and gas markets. Moreover, the event will be a great opportunity to discuss the challenges related to the decarbonisation of energy systems such as the integration of the rising share of variable renewable energy, the decentralisation of energy production and the role of energy prosumers, as well as the integration of electricity and gas sectors and the role of renewable and low-carbon gases.

Moreover, the European Union and China embarked on the modernisation of their energy systems supporting the climate change mitigation to achieve the Paris Agreement objectives.
