The IEEE Summit: Towards Secure Green Energy

Tuesday, 10th November, 2015. 09:30 -17:30 The Hotel, Boulevard de Waterloo, 38, 1000 Brussels

IEEE Summit

Towards Secure Green Energy is the second in a series of high-level discussions bringing influential policy makers together with prominent engineers and scientists to discuss critical issues in technology policy for Europe. IEEE, the organizer of the Summit, is the largest and most global of the world’s engineering professional societies, with about 430,000 members in 190 countries.

In light of the ongoing Energy Union debate, energy is high on the EU policy agenda and questions around decarbonisation, security of supply and cost-effectiveness, have become more important than ever.

The Summit will discuss present and future energy policies and initiatives to enable the transition to a low carbon economy. It will provide three dynamic panel debates, each including both policy makers and technologists, to address the following questions:

  • Enabling the energy transition: When will green become the new normal?
  • How reliable is reliable enough? 
  • Green, yes! Reliable, yes! But who pays?

The panels will be moderated by Jacki Davis, an experienced journalist, speaker and moderator of high-level events in Brussels and EU national capitals. The expected audience will include senior policy and energy technology experts, primarily from Europe.
