Discussion Forum: State of the EU and the ‘Fit for 55’ goals

Welcome to Bird & Bird’s panel discussion on the current state of the EU and the affects it has on the ‘Fit for 55’ goals.

Following the recent state of affairs in Europe, companies and the whole EU has had to deepen their contemplations and take new factors into consideration as regards to the goals of EU’s Fit for 55 package. How can companies and governments effectively secure security of supply, decarbonise gas and what impact will this have economically and politically? Being prepared for the regulatory development that is framing the entire energy revolution, as well as its impact on your business, will be decisive in the formation of the future energy market design.

During the event, we are committed to providing a platform where industry thought leaders can come together to determine shared solutions, strategies and contemplated courses of events that will shape the future of the energy industry and the economies within the EU.

Join us to hear industry experts share their opinions and explore answers to the most focal questions driving the energy transition in the realm of gas and hydrogen.
