CEER-BEUC-NEON event on the EU Sustainable Energy Week Extended Programme “Consumer-Centric Energy Transition: Ensuring Inclusiveness”
22 October, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM CET
On 22 October, from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM, CEER, together with the European Consumer Association (BEUC) and the National Energy Ombudsmen Network (NEON), is holding a virtual event of the EUSEW Extended programme focusing on “A Consumer-Centric Energy Transition: Ensuring Inclusiveness”. The event brings together key stakeholders to discuss the principle of inclusiveness and its implementation in the recently-proposed Fit for 55 package.
Achieving (at least) 55% emission reductions by 2030 will only be feasible if a coherent policy framework across sectors is put in place that embeds inclusiveness in its design and implementation, in order to enable consumers to actively take part in the energy transition and to ensure that no one is left behind. The event aims at adopting a holistic view of energy consumers, directly addressing different consumer typologies and their specific needs by providing concrete examples on how these developments impact their lives, thereby bringing consumers closer to the European Institutions and the European legislative process.
