Event Description

2030 EuropeBusiness press conference

Journalists are invited to join a debate with Europe's leading renewable
energy companies on the future of Europe's energy policies. Should
Europeans continue to support renewable energy? Is there a trade off
between clean energy and competitiveness, or is this a false debate? Who
benefits from weaker climate and energy goals - and will they bring down
our energy bills?

The CEOs of Acciona Energia, Alstom, Enercon, ERG Renew, RES and Vestas -
companies that represent hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions of
euros of investment - will be coming to Brussels on 12 February to call
for a strong 2030 climate and energy framework with an ambitious renewable
energy target including binding country targets.

They are part of a group of 91 companies and organisations which have
signed a business statement calling for such a framework and targets:

The open discussion on Europe's energy future will take place at the Hotel
Silken Berlaymont on 12 February at 10:30.
