Electricity Day, November 2017

In November this year we will be holding the first annual OIES Electricity Day.

This meeting will be an opportunity to debate some of the most important issues shaping the electricity sector, especially as it faces the challenges of climate change and disruptive technological and business trends.

The meeting will bring together an invited group of participants including sponsors of the OIES Electricity Project, energy and other companies, and governments, in addition to academics, consultants and OIES Fellows.

This year’s Electricity Day will focus on the following themes:

- Decarbonisation and the role of electricity
- Integration of renewable energy and the implications for market and regulatory reform
- Digitisation, decentralisation and implications of disruptive technology

In practice, the proposals are as much about preventing back-sliding into national mechanisms and a retreat from collective EU goals as they are about making forward leaps in European energy policy. The hole at the Energy Union’s heart is lack of governance and coordination at the EU level. “Europe's Long Energy Journey: Towards an Energy Union?".
