PKEE in Paris on the future of European energy

The future of energy, the importance of the role of the consumer, new technologies and the EU legal frameworks. This is what the experts from all over Europe are discussing in Paris today (5.12) during the conference “Electricity: Welcome to The world of Tomorrow”, organized under the patronage of French President Emmanuel Macron. The Polish Electricity Association (PKEE) at this important meeting is represented by PKEE Vice President Marta Gajęcka.

The European energy sector is currently undergoing great transformation and modernization, adapting to a world in which changes take place dynamically and only the most innovative and customer-oriented companies have a chance to grow. Strategies of energy groups now strongly emphasize the development of new business lines sometimes far beyond the model in which they have been operating so far. Many of these changes result from the implementation of EU regulations. The regulation package “Clean Energy For All” presented by the European Commission in November 2016 will redefine the energy market on the Old Continent.

The forthcoming finale of the discussion over the set of directives shall determine, among other things, the manner in which we will trade in electricity. It will also determine how much it is going to cost households and industry, and whether new energy installations will be created. President Marta Gajęcka emphasized that PKEE has been actively involved in these talks for a long time.

“If we want the Polish market conditions in the power sector to be taken into account, we must continue to actively participate in events at the highest level, such as the one today in Paris. Thanks to this, we know that our voice is heard and taken into account.” – Marta Gajecka, Vice President of the Polish Electricity Association said.

During the conference, there were discussed, among others, the prospects of energy transformation until the year 2030 and how changes can affect the development of innovation among enterprises from the power sector
