TenneT European Energy conference  
'Accelerating towards 55 percent'

How to develop a future-proof energy infrastructure for Europe?

This April the EU has adopted ambitious new targets to curb climate change. The Member States and the European Parliament  have agreed to increase the reduction of CO2 emissions from 40 to 55 percent. EU Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans described the agreement as 'a landmark moment for the EU and a strong signal to the world'.

The Climate Law sets the EU on a green path for next generations. An increase from 40 percent to 55 percent emissions reduction by 2030 puts the energy sector on notice for a ramp-up in supply, transport and demand and will give electricity an even more important role in decarbonising the different sectors of the economy. The rate of emission reductions has to be accelerated significantly. 

But how can we decarbonize our economy and develop a future-proof energy infrastructure for Europe?

Together with Frans Timmermans as our keynote speaker and amongst others Morten Helveg Petersen, rapporteur on offshore energy of the European parliament and Christian Bruch, CEO of Siemens Energy, we will discuss what has to be done to achieve Europe's new goal for 2030 to reduce European greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030.  

  • Do we already have the necessary seamless policy framework in place? 
  • How important is Offshore wind in achieving the goals?
  • Electrons or molecules; what is the role of hydrogen?
  • What  energy infrastructure do we have to build, when and where?
  • Can renewables replace fossil energy in industry?
  • Are the necessary  investments feasible?

This and more on the 1th of June during our online conference. Sign in now.

I am very much looking forward to use this occasion to share with you how we can work together in order to make Europe’s climate ambitions become a reality. 

On behalf of the TenneT Executive Board,
