Reflecting on the EUSEW 2024

This week (11/06/2024), EVVE attended the EUSEW 2024 in Brussels! From June 11th to June 13th, we joined experts, policymakers, NGOs, and industry leaders to discuss Europe’s energy future.

This year’s EUSEW highlighted the importance of implementing the Fit for 55 package in decarbonising the economy and achieving the EU climate targets. The main take away is an harmonious implementation of what has been achieved during the previous mandate, emphasising consumer engagement and a socially just transition.

Power system flexibility emerged as a significant opportunity for enhancing energy efficiency. By empowering consumers with the right tools, we can foster positive behavioural changes, help them optimise their energy use and ultimately increase the energy available while reducing their energy bills down.

However, awareness and education are crucial in harnessing the benefits of new technologies. Ensuring users understand and use devices effectively will be essential in fostering long-term sustainable energy practices.

The discussions underscored the importance of social justice in the energy transition. Protecting vulnerable households and ensuring equitable access to benefits are essential priorities, as no one should be left behind.

Looking ahead, as reaffirmed by Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, the EU’s commitment to the Green Deal and achieving Net-Zero emissions by 2050 remains strong, despite various challenges.

With the right technologies, incentives, and a robust regulatory framework, a sustainable future is within our grasp.
