On January 9th, Solar Heat Europe’s President, Robin Welling, took part, together with other 20 CEOs from the renewable energy sector and the Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete, to the first EU Clean Energy Industrial Competitiveness and Innovation Forum.
The Forum is comprised of three separate sections: Renewables, Batteries, and Construction. The Renewables section’s objective was to consolidate the industrial basis for renewables in the EU and to gather industry support to take advantage of the growth opportunities of the clean energy transition. More than 20 CEOs and industry leaders, as well as other relevant actors, such as representatives from international organizations and financing parties, took part in this dialogue that focused on how to reinforce the competitiveness of the EU renewable energy industry’s value chain.
The Forum will organise two high-level meetings per year, to ensure an ongoing dialogue between the European Commission and relevant stakeholders. Each meeting will focus on specific themes associated with the developments in the EU policy and regulatory framework.
Following the High-Level Meeting on the 9th January, a public event with all three sections of the EU Clean Energy Industrial and Innovation Forum will be organised during the EU Industry Days on 22-23 February 2018.
