Following such mandate and in view of the preparation by the Commission of a Communication and a Staff Working Document, DG Enterprise and Industry commissioned CEPS to carry out a set of studies aimed at providing well-grounded evidence about the evolution and composition of energy prices and costs at plant level within individual industry sectors. To this end, CEPS prepared five sectoral case studies: two on ceramics (wall and floor tiles and bricks and roof tiles), two on chemicals (ammonia and chlorine) and one on flat glass.
The aim of this event is to present the energy prices trends identified in the CEPS studies. Drawing on the results of the studies as well as on evidence from other similar studies, the event will then feature a panel discussion on the level and drivers of EU energy prices.
The event will be followed by lunch. Registration starts at 09:00. Participation is free of charge.
