on 31st May, 2022 we are inviting 25 outstanding individuals, between 20 and 40 years old, from all over Europe to our Advocacy Seminar in Brussels“Emerging from the Energy Price Crisis: How to build a sustainable backbone for Europe’s industry?” in partnership with Aurora Energy Research and FUTURE Institute for Sustainable Transformation. The rise in energy prices that took place in the run-up to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and that has escalated further since, has called into question one of the fundamental tenets of the energy transition: that fossil fuels, particularly natural gas, would be available in sufficient quantities and at affordable costs until renewables and their derivatives such as green hydrogen can take over. Instead, prices for natural gas and coal have climbed to unprecedented levels, seriously endangering the competitiveness of European industry and creating enormous economic and social problems.
The Advocacy Seminar takes place at The Cercle Royal Gaulois from 12h00 to 18h00 CET and will encompass a Panel Discussion with Simone Mori, Head of Europe at Enel and Johanna Schiele, Policy Officer Innovation Fund at the European Commission moderated by Hanns Koenig, Head of Commissioned Projects at Aurora Energy Research. Afterwards, Tobias Raffel and Jannis Röthemeier, Executive Directors at FUTURE Institute for Sustainable Transformation, will hold an Ideation Workshop for the participants where the following question will be tackled: “How can each of us have footprint, handprint, heartprint impact for a sustainable energy security?”If you are interested in participating please send us your application.
