On 3 and 4 April, the States General will organise a thematic conference on energy entitled ‘Energy, including some aspects of innovation, paying special attention to the circular economy’.
The key issue under discussion in this conference will be how to accelerate a cost-efficient transition towards a clean, competitive and safe energy future. The minister of Economic Affairs, Henk Kamp, the Vice-President of the European Commission, Maroš Šefčovič, and European Commissioner Karmenu Vella will speak during the plenary morning programme. This will be followed by a panel discussion with several international guest speakers. In the afternoon, four group sessions will be held:
- Energy infrastructure and security of supply
- Energy savings: energy-saving cities
- Sustainable energy sources
- Circular economy
