ALDE Workshop: The EU Energy Security Strategy – How to use less Russian Gas?

Wednesday 28 January 2015 from 16:30 to 18:30
European Parliament, JAN Building, Room 4Q1

Energy security is top of Brussels’ agenda. How can we increase our independence from Russian oil and gas? How can we achieve real security and avoid being locked into an unsustainable energy model?

This workshop will allow key stakeholders from the energy sector, as well as policymakers, to discuss the possibilities for breaking Europe’s dependence on Russian gas and oil. Through the development and deployment of energy efficiency measures, Europe can reduce consumption and dependence on energy imports, as well as drive competitiveness and growth, creating local jobs and business opportunities within Europe whilst guaranteeing our Energy security.

 

Vice President Maroš Šefčovič for Energy Union will give a keynote speech on what role energy efficiency will play in the future energy security as well as the Energy Union.

The workshop will be followed by a cocktail reception.

Interpretation will be provided in English and French.

This event will be livestreamed.
