Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Tuesday, 27 November 2018 10:00 - 12:00

Venue: Friends of Europe-Square de Meeûs 5-6 1000 Brussels Belgium


In partnership with the International Energy Agency (IEA), Friends of Europe’s annual high-level conference and presentation of the International Energy Agency’s flagship World Energy Outlook, regarded as the gold standard in energy analysis, discusses the rapidly-evolving global energy landscape and its implications for Europe.

In our 2018 edition, we are welcoming key speakers and senior stakeholders to exchange insights on the outlook for European energy markets and provide first-hand key insights on the outcomes of international climate and energy discussions held in Katowice during COP24.


The world energy market is experiencing major transformations: the cost of renewables is plunging and electricity demand is set to grow at twice the pace of energy demand as a whole. Understanding Europe’s Energy Union in this dynamic interplay of energy markets, technologies and policies has never been more critical. The presentation of the 2018 edition of the International Energy Agency’s flagship World Energy Outlook, regarded as the gold standard in energy analysis, sheds light on latest data, technology trends and policy announcements while taking into account energy demand and supply projections through 2040 under different scenarios. 

Join IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol and key European leaders to hear how the outlook for global and European energy markets is set to evolve. 

  • What will tomorrow’s power sector look like? How will it incentivise investment and ensure reliable supply, and what share of our total energy needs can ultimately be met by electricity? 
  • How are traditional oil and gas-exporting countries adapting to today’s new price and policy environment, and what might be the implications for these economies if longer-term structural changes are needed?
  • How is the Energy Union helping Europe in achieving stronger climate action and energy security?

Speakers include: 

Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) 
Claudio Descalzi, Chief Executive Officer at ENI 
Olivier Grabette, Executive Vice-President at RTE
Maroš Šefčovič, European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union

Dharmendra Kanani, Director of Insights at Friends of Europe
