September 28, 2016 – Stanhope Hotel Brussels – from 1600
Europe is on the path towards a clean, low-carbon energy system. But which technologies and policies are most likely to get us there quickly and at affordable cost?
Energy Post, the EU’s leading energy publication, has teamed up with EDF, Europe’s premier company for energy R&D, to debate this key issue with a number of experts in energy innovation.
The central debate will focus on the question “which innovations – in policies and technologies – will help us deliver the low-carbon economy in Europe.”
Join us for the debate and hear EDF share its latest achievements in advanced energy from Saclay – including electric vehicles, storage, tidal energy, solar PV, smart cities and smart grids
