European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson will be one of the speakers at the Budapest Energy Summit to be held online on 1 December.

Despite the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic last March, the European Commission’s efforts to reach its ambitious climate targets outlined in the European Green Deal continued at full speed.

Indeed, one of the aspects highlighted by the pandemic is that once this crisis is over climate change will still be here and the actions we take now can have effects for the years to come. Very recently the European Commission presented the Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy, as offshore renewable energy is among the technologies with the greatest potential to scale up, given the great number and variety of sea basins in the European Union and the steadily falling costs of new installations.
