Expected short-term impact of a universal climate agreement on the Eastern European energy industry (CAESAR Foundation in partnership with the Sciences Po Energy Association)
The theme of our conference is the transformation of the European energy industry post-COP21. We assume that a universal and legally-binding climate agreement will be found during the 21st
Conference of the Parties (COP 21) to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which will take place this year in Paris.
We will mainly discuss about the short-term impact of an international climate agreement on:
● the Eastern European energy industry, with focus on the electricity sector
● the creation of the European Energy Union
● the liberalization of the energy markets across Europe
● the deployment of low-carbon technologies in the transport and electricity sector.
In this side event Christian Egenhofer will address the issues associated with Eastern and South East Europe, which CEPS has been working on for some time: Regionalisation EU Energy Policies
