We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
To meet its broader climate and energy goals, Europe must modernise and expand its energy network.
The Baltic Energy Markets Interconnector Plan is a key component to an open and integrated electricity and gas market in the Baltic Sea region.
To discuss this regional approach to a modern energy infrastructure the Joint Research Centre (JRC) together with the Estonian National Parliament (Foresight Centre) and the Academy of Sciences organise this event on securing tomorrow's energy.
Focusing on energy security, politicians and policymakers can meet with JRC and Estonian scientists as well as regulators, operators and civil society (NGOs) working in the energy field.
The event will take place in two venues:
A modern energy infrastructure is crucial for an integrated energy market and to enable the EU to meet its broader climate and energy goals.
To absorb energy from renewable sources and secure supplies everywhere we need resilient, reliable and smart energy networks.
This requires considerable investment in the existing gas and electricity networks, with rapid development of their interconnections.
Indeed, security of supply, competitiveness or sustainability goals will never be met without resilient, reliable and smart energy networks.
