The European Commission has held the first high-level meeting of the EU Clean Energy Industrial Competitiveness and Innovation Forum to discuss the growth opportunities arising from the clean energy transition.

The forum was opened on January 9, 2018, by the EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, Miguel Arias Cañete.

The meeting’s objective was to consolidate the industrial basis for renewables in the EU and to gather industry support to take advantage of the growth opportunities of the clean energy transition.

More than 20 CEOs and industry leaders, including small and medium enterprises, as well as representatives from international organizations, took part in this dialogue that focused on how to reinforce the competitiveness of the EU renewable energy industry’s value chain.

The role of research and innovation and trade policy was also in the center of discussions, according to the European Commission.

A public event with all three sections of the Clean Energy Industrial Forum, including renewables, batteries, and construction, will be organized during the EU Industry Days on February 22-23, 2018.

This will also serve as a spring board to assert EU industrial leadership in low carbon energy technologies to be show-cased in the 9th Clean Energy Ministerial and the 3rd Mission Innovation meetings in Malmö and Copenhagen in 25 May 2018, the European Commission said.
