We are proud to announce that on 8th April, under the leadership of the Centre for European Policy Studies Energy & Climate House (CEPS ECH), we are supporting the organisation of an event in Brussels focusing on "Moving towards a Low-Carbon Economy in South-eastern Europe: Regulation, finance and investment."
This event is the beginning of a series of CEPS ECH activities in this field.
The objectives of the event are to:
focus on 'low carbon' challenges given the prevalence of coal, e.g. security of supply, affordability/energy poverty, investment in low-carbon technology.
highlight the importance of securing investment and regulatory predictability as essential elements in the transition to a low-carbon economy in the context of the European Commission's Long Term Decarbonisation Strategy (LTS).
