Edison’s advocacy activities are only related to the field of energy. We provide our contributions to all the public consultations, we formulate position papers on specific subjects and we arrange meetings with the EU institutions. We are currently following several dossiers related to the energy union, gas infrastructure, electricity and gas market design and related energy and environmental policies.

Edison sponsors only think tank events.







Edison has been collaborating with the European institutions since many years, offering its experience as a leader in the energy market, for a more in depth elaboration of community legislation. For this purpose, Edison elaborates analysis, studies and positions which are shared with community institutions and stakeholders involved in the European debate.

Edison has also initated an ambitious investment plan in energy infrastructures, in the electricity sector as well as in the natural gas sector. Many aspects of these investments have implications linked to community law and in some cases are under the complete competency of the EU institutions. Edison’s Institutional Relations Department has the task of effectively and appropriately interacting to guarantee to the European commission and the institutions involved punctual and broad information on the evolution of the dossiers, as well as elaborating subjects that fall directly under community competency.

The Brussels office actively collaborates with the various stakeholders and representative organizations and interacts when necessary with community institutions also to represent the positions of the organizations.
