The 16 June 2020 from 10:00 until 11:30
Organised in the framework of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) taking place online from the 22nd to the 26th June around the theme “Beyond the crisis: clean energy for green recovery & growth”
As part of the European Union’s 2030 climate and energy package, EU Member States are required to develop energy and climate strategies (NECPs). Following the launch of the European Green Deal and the publication of the EU Climate Law proposal, this session will discuss their implications on the NECPs and climate and energy targets. It will explore how the latter could set Member States on the path to climate neutrality by 2040 in line with the Paris Agreement. The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on various financing opportunities such as the proposed Just Transition Mechanism, the new investment scheme under Invest EU and the EIB public loan facility will also be discussed.
