Vlerick hosts EU Energy & Climate Policy forum at Brussels campus

On 26 November the Brussels campus of Vlerick Business School will be hosting the 2013 FSR Forum on the topic of “EU Energy & Climate policy: where do we go from here?”. This Forum is organised by the European University Institute (EUI) and the Florence School of Regulation (FSR). This is the second joint initiative that our school has with the Florence School of Regulation. Together we are also organising a new programme for power grid managers. Vlerick professor Leonardo Meeus is our expert in the field of Energy Markets.

About 150 leading policymakers, business leaders, regulators and academics will gather to discuss the future of energy and climate change policy in Europe. The opening speeches are given by Günther Oettinger, the EU Commissioner for Energy, and Connie Hedegaard, the EU Commissioner for Climate Action.

You can follow the debate as the two main panel discussions on “Bringing innovation into retail energy markets” and “Framing 2030 climate policy: is there a need for a major overhaul?” will be live-streamed.
