EU Clean Energy Package – Successful grid integration of renewable energies in pioneer regions such as Saxony-Anhalt

Date: 28/06/2017 - Brussels

When: Wednesday, June 28th 2017, from 18h30 on

Where: Representation of Saxony-Anhalt to the EU, Boulevard Saint Michel 80, B-1040 Brussels

The Clean Energy Package aims to integrate renewable energies into the European electricity system. But how will it affect those regions that already have a high share of renewable energy sources within their energy mix? Does the package take into account the different levels of progress regarding the energy transition? Or might it even undermine the successful energy transition in pioneer regions like Saxony-Anhalt? And how will the package affect the distribution of prosperity within the European Union?

​​

We would like to discuss these and other questions at our evening event
