Energy and Climate Change

The Energy and Climate Change unit addresses a broad spectrum of challenges with an EU, policy-oriented focus and in the wider geopolitical context.

Our programme is based on the proven format of combining in-depth research with stakeholder discussions and review. The programme is developed in consultation with the EU institutions (European Commission, European Parliament), member states, other research institutes, CEPS members, notably business and industry and relevant stakeholders such as NGOs and trade unions.
