Conversation with Catharina Sikow-Magny, Director at DG Energy of the European Commission.
The EU’s electricity market is in the midst of a transition towards low-carbon. The Russian invasion of Ukraine and its fall-out have further heightened the need for reform of the EU electricity market. On 14 March, the European Commission has agreed on its long-awaited proposal, largely driven by two major political objectives – to shield consumers from price variability and lower wholesale electricity prices while ensuring sufficient investment incentives. The CEPS meeting will discuss principal elements, identifies next steps and ask whether the current proposal is fit for purpose, notably in light of the long-term perspectives of the EU electricity market.
The discussion will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
