The challenge: integrating energy systems across Europe's regions and sectors

Tthe European Union aims to provide a secure, affordable and sustainable energy supply for the benefit of its economy, its citizens and the climate.

A key challenge in achieving this vision will be how to ensure the integration of diverse energy systems across geographical boundaries and sectors in order to realise progress in fossil heavy areas such as transport, buildings and heating.

The challenges that the EU is facing are not unlike those of the rest of the world and how we solve them can make a tangible contribution to achieving progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goal #7 – ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
