AEB Panel discussion in the framework of the Russian Energy Week 2019: October 3, 2019, 12:00-13:15


Fast-paced growth of the EU economy since mid-2010th had resulted in the higher than forecasted energy intensity of the member states economies. If the trend continues, the EU energy consumption may grow further, and the policy makers impact will have to take additional measures to secure the decrease of environmental and climate impact of the energy sector in the region. For Russia, as a reliable partner of the EU on energy supply, it opens a range of market opportunities, the maximization of which would require close cooperation between both partners. This also works vice versa, as the innovations of European energy companies can help Russia to achieve the goals of the Environment National Project. How Russia can help the EU to secure the environmental transformation of its energy sector? Which measures are required to expand the energy market between the Russia and EU? How is digitalization changing the energy landscape? What role should business play in strengthening the cooperation? What sustainable innovations of European companies can be applicable in Russia, and what is the potential of scientific and technical cooperation in the energy and energy efficiency spheres and in handling non-hazardous and low-hazard industrial waste? Is the environmental transformation of energy sector relevant to industrial level, or the consumers can also contribute to its achievement? These questions are to be answered by the panelists in the framework of the Russian Energy Week.
