Energy seminar Sunday 2 July:
Sweden, exception or exceptional? An international perspective on energy.
Welcome to a seminar, where our international panel experts will discuss the policy environment for the Swedish and international energy industry. Climate change requires development of the energy sector and new market conditions. But has the political sphere kept pace? Energy companies need long-term regulatory security in order to make the right investments – investments that we will live with for decades to come.
Our international panel will for example discuss the following questions related to the Swedish energy system:
- Has the Paris agreement been Trumped or is it still alive?
- How far are we from delivering on the goals of the Paris agreement, and what will it take?
- Is the Swedish bipartisan energy agreement unique, or uniquely common? As a foreign observer, what do you find particularly interesting or surprising?
- Is it better to be fossil free now than sorry later, and can security of supply actually be an integral part of a low carbon energy system?
The panel: Klaus Schäfer, CEO Uniper SE, Mette Kahlin, Political Attaché and Communication Director at the British Embassy, Kirsty Gogan, Global Director at Energy For Humanity
Our Swedish panel will focus on the Swedish energy agreement from last year:
- What is your interpretation of the previous panel’s discussion on the energy agreement?
- Will the energy agreement be enough to achieve the goals set out in Paris?
- Will the next government respect the agreement?
The panel: Swedish energy representatives: Ingemar Nilsson (S), Gunnar Caperius (C) and Sofia Fölster (M)
Day/hour: Sunday the 2nd of July, between 17.00 and 18.00.
Location: at Klosterlängorna in Visby, beside Stora Torget and the ruin of Sankta Karin
