RGI-PIK-Mercator Workshop: Are our market designs and policies fit to reach the Paris Agreement? Perspectives from California, Germany and Europe

The European Union has recently agreed on the clean energy for all package meant to put Europe on track to reach decarbonisation targets. Germany is one of the leading forces behind it, and more broadly tries to get on track to achieve its climate goals. On the other side of the Atlantic, California has broken record after record in renewable growth and carbon cuts.

 

RGI and ACER Infrastructure Task Force Workshop on Regulation and Innovation

During the past years, many grid operators have substantially increased their stakeholder engagement activities, increasing transparency and speeding up grid development. These practices need a solid legal underpinning to be effective and consistent. We are meeting in Brussels to share experiences and discuss with TSOs and national regulators how participatory processes can be better recognised in national regulation.

RGI mini-workshop to share best practices: "Permitting, consultation and environmental protection for offshore transmission grids"

Marine renewables are expected to represent a significant share of Europe’s future renewable energy deployment. Guided by European regulation and the ambition to develop the European Internal Energy Market, grid developers are also increasing the number of submarine interconnectors. Together with experts, we want to discuss what we already do well and what we need to improve with regard to nature protection and stakeholder involvement in the marine environment.
