Annual Brussels meeting
Energy UK’s European Committee held its annual Brussels meeting on 7th/8th June 2017, with fifteen member companies attending.
Lawrence Slade chaired a lively dinner discussion on the Clean Energy Package with officials from DG Energy and UKRep and on the following day the group held discussions with European Commission officials on electricity market design, renewables and energy efficiency.
The meeting concluded with a session with EURELECTRIC, exploring themes such as the role of electrification and the European energy sector’s views on Brexit.
In late November an Energy UK delegation met with Commission Vice-President Maros Sefcovic and senior officials from DG Energy and DG Clima for an exchange of views on the Energy Union, the Clean Energy Package and EU Emissions Trading System. These meetings were rounded off with a dinner for MEPs, which featured a constructive debate on EU/UK energy relations post-Brexit.
