Media Partnership - Fit for 55: How can we REPower consumers for energy security and sustainability?
Schneider Electric, in partnership with EURACTIV, invites you to a panel discussion on how REPowerEU can further empower consumers, so that they could play a key role in transforming Europe energy system in the next seven years. The combination of energy efficiency, demand-side flexibility and electrification can radically transform Europe’s energy system from a bottom-up perspective. The Fit for 55 package has identified ways to accelerate energy efficiency and electrification of critical segments of the EU economy such as building, industry and transport. Solar panels, heat pumps and EV charging stations on one hand; energy efficiency targets, minimum energy performance standards, reform of the Emission Trading Schemes and renewable energy targets on the other hand. These are examples of technologies and policies which are being discussed at European Union level at this moment.
We have invited a few key decision-makers from the EU institutions, key policy analysts and Schneider Electric’s Europe CEO, Philippe Delorme, to discuss these policy proposals and to address some burning questions: Are the newly proposed objectives in RePowerEU too much or not enough? How can we create a systemic change that will create value while ensuring Europe’ sustainability and resilience? What are the loopholes in the European Commission proposal? Can we make it in such short timeframe? And above all, how could the EU develop a new policy framework that will put consumers in the driving seat of Europe’s energy transition journey ?
The event will be held in hybrid format and will last 1h15. For those attending physically, a light lunch will be served at the end of the event (13:15).
