Balancing the ‘Energy Economy’

Europe is facing an energy crisis. With tough carbon reduction targets, efforts to secure energy supply and mounting political uncertainty, energy has become a critical issue for governments, businesses, civil society and European citizens.

In this context, Science|Business is organising a conference that will gather leaders from the European academic, business and policy worlds to discuss the following issues:

  • How can the new Commission co-operate across functions to ensure progress?
  • What mechanisms can achieve real breakthroughs in resolving the energy trilemma?
  • What incentives to embark on new energy infrastructure projects? Is the public on side?
  • What are the key enablers and barriers to investment in the energy sector?
  • How can policy frameworks, business models and market design ensure that energy projects continue to attract investment?
  • Energy efficiency - the most obvious, and the cheapest, solution?
  • What role for new technologies to achieve system efficiencies?
  • Can Europe find the ideal energy mix?
