Joint Plenary Panel Discussion

Wednesday 4 June 2014 - 14:00 - 15:30 Topic: Navigating the Power Transition This year panel topic develops the overall joint theme of the events, “Navigating the Power Transition. The panel will take as its starting point the fact that the energy mix in Europe has changed significantly and is fully expected to edge increasingly towards renewables. The panel will be asked to expound their views on how the industry should adapt, what national and European governments can do to smooth the transition, what technologies will be needed to cope with the change and what shape the industry will take as a result of the re-alignments taking place. Is the transition creating a crisis in the industry that will see some incumbents fail or an opportunity for a re-positioning that will produce new business opportunities?
