EUSEW: Join to discuss electrification

Article illustration

As a part of official EUSEW2020 programme, we are coordinating daily discussions on the high-level policy conference from the perspective of electrification. Going beyond energy sector and focusing on final energy and demand side, these daily discussions will be reflecting on the EUSEW high level policy events’ themes. No presentations, but a free-flowing live discussion facilitated by the moderator open for your questions.

Electrification already drives innovation and new business models. The aim is to deliver lower energy costs and lower climate emissions for all Europeans. Electricity connect energy transition to many other sectors, such as health, digitalisation, innovation, food and ICT to name a few. Electrification is the key way for fulfilling Green Deal and mitigating climate change. It is also the most economic way to deep energy transition, reaching downstream to industry, SMEs and private households.
