Expected further debate may even lead to a fundamental decision by the European Council on the key features of an EU climate policy framework that should deliver on the EU's climate targets.
The EC has set out a new vision for a digitalised, integrated and circular energy system, driven by electrification, powered by renewables and relying on energy efficiency and reducing energy waste.
This STOA workshop - hosted by Tiemo WÖLKEN, MEP, STOA Panel member - will serve to discuss the Scientific Opinion "A systemic approach to the energy transition in Europe" recently released by the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors (GCSA) of the European Commission, assisted by the Consortium of European Science Academies (SAPEA), as part of the EC's Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM). It will also provide a first insights into the "Fit for 55" legislative package in preparation of its imminent presentation by the EC.
STOA continues working on the topic through the ongoing execution (together with KIT and ISI) of the study "The potential of hydrogen for decarbonising EU industry" to be released in September.
