BP poster picA trilogy on energy : 1st seminar for MEPs

Tuesday, 1 July 2014, 14:00 – 15:30
EP Strasbourg – SDM S7
Room Salvador de Madariaga
with our partner BP

In the next five years, energy will continue to be one of the biggest topics of discussion on the agenda of the European Parliament.

This trilogy will provide MEPs with valuable insights into different matters of this challenging and multifaceted field, which spans the works of many Committees in the EP.

The MEPs attending the seminar will be given the opportunity for a one–minute intervention (filmed & spread online) on the energy issue, which is closer to their heart, whether it is a topic that regards their constituency or future scenarios and challenges they foresee.

The panel

Mr Emmanuel Haton, Director BP European Government Affairs, will be giving a lecture with a focus on 3 topics that will provide food for thought and will generate further discussion: energy security, fossil fuels, renewables.
Commissioner Oettinger is invited to speak on the panel,
MEPs Michael Theurer & Jan Huitema (eu40), who will be hosting and moderating the event.
We will be filming the one-minute interventions and produce a video, which will be distributed via social media channels online and which MEPs will be able to use for their own purposes, too.

The topics

  • the cost of energy as outcome of a delicate equilibrium between offer and demand;
  • technology, geopolitics, tax revenues, climate policies as many factors which come into this equation – a shift in one of these terms inevitably changes the whole equation;
  • as a global actor, what is the EU’s room for manoeuvre to pursue an efficient energy policy?
