Seminar: The Energy Challenges Facing Europe: What can the EU do?

5 March 2014 17:30 - 19:00 Add to Calendar 5-03-2014 17:30:00 5-03-2014 19:00:00 36 Seminar: The Energy Challenges Facing Europe: What can the EU do? DD/MM/YYYY

A joint seminar with the Institute for Contemporary European Studies and the Senior European Experts, followed by a reception in the University.

Over the last five years there has been a developing awareness that a large number of challenges to energy policy are emerging around the world but particularly in Europe. 

What can the EU, with its limited competence in this field, contribute to solving these problems? Amid all the doom-laden talk of the lights going out across Europe and third country blackmail of EU Member States over their energy supplies in the future, is there not an economic opportunity here? Troubled by high unemployment and low growth, surely the huge investment that Europe’s energy infrastructure needs is an opportunity as well as a problem? 

The seminar will be informed by a background paper prepared by the Senior European Experts group which will be sent to all participants in advance.

Please register by Friday 28th February when registration will close.
