Conference: “The Fast and the furious: Speeding up the green transition Brussels”, April 12 (College of Europe, Bruges)

The IBERDROLA Manuel Marín Chair for European Energy and Climate Policy will organise its annual conference entitled “The Fast and the furious: Speeding up the green transition”.

The event will be opened by European Commissioner for Environment Virginijus Sinkevičius and Chairman of Iberdrola Ignacio Galán. The conference is composed of two modules:

1) “Renewables at full speed – what are the possibilities?”, which will explore the nexus renewables-environment, in particular in relation to expedited renewables permitting, offshore and onshore wind energy. It will explore the question of how fast the expedited deployment of renewables can go, and which challenges need to be met regarding the energy system, biodiversity and social acceptance.

 2) EU’s Green Deal Industrial Plan. What are the different design options of the Plan, and how should the European Commission’s proposal be evaluated? Are we at risk of companies offshoring, and what can the Green Deal Industrial Plan do? Does the loosening of competition rules to deal with the energy crisis risk leading to distortion in the EU’s internal market?
