Tackling Europe’s Security of Energy Supply, Resiliency and Climate Goals in Uncertain Times

The EU has agreed ambitious targets to reduce CO2 emissions in the framework of the European Green Deal. The 'Fit for 55' package aims to accelerate energy efficiency, renewable energy and decarbonisation efforts in the current decade, with the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. Today, European citizens and industry face an unprecedented energy crisis, putting energy affordability and security of supply at the centre of the political agenda. In this session, top executives from leading European companies will address the latest developments as well as progress towards long-term decarbonisation goals. They will also discuss the role of cogeneration technologies in enhancing efficiency, boosting system resilience and supporting the switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.

Moderator: Jeremy Harrison, Principal Analyst - Local Energy Systems Service, Delta-EE

PANEL SESSION 2

Innovations and Technologies to Future-proof Cogeneration

The dramatic escalation of the situation in Ukraine has confirmed the need for the EU to develop a more resilient and diversified energy system. At the same time, Europe’s energy industry is being expected to achieve ambitious targets for decarbonisation and renewables uptake in the framework of 'Fit for 55' and REPowerEU. This session will focus on the most innovative, sustainable and future-proof cogeneration technologies and applications, ranging from hydrogen to biogases and waste heat.

PANEL SESSION 3

Fit For 55 - Unlocking Local Energy System Integration For Higher Ambition

With its 'Fit for 55' legislation, the EU seeks to accelerate the uptake of clean energy solutions with the aim of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Taking an integrated approach to energy systems including electricity, heat and gas infrastructures will be crucial for delivering on ambitious objectives at the lowest cost to European citizens, businesses and industry. Local energy planning will further contribute towards an inclusive, resilient and secure energy transition that respects the diversity of energy consumers and local circumstances, as well as different starting points across EU Member States. This session will explore the challenges and opportunities of energy systems integration, showcasing success stories and identifying barriers to be addressed.

Moderator: Sonja van Renssen, Editor-in-Chief, Energy Monitor

PANEL SESSION 4

Finance for Clean Energy: CHP Investment Financing Solutions

To deliver on its ambitious targets for reducing emissions by 2030 and becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, the European Union must mobilise massive investments in the development and deployment of clean technologies, using public funds and incentives to attract private capital. Given its pivotal role in the energy transition, the cogeneration sector can help to channel investments towards efficient technologies. This session will look at funding opportunities across Europe, best practices in EU Member States, and how to unlock existing sources of finance to support the uptake of cogeneration solutions.
