The European Green Deal, energy security, and the future transatlantic agenda


 

Please join the Atlantic Council for a keynote address by Ditte Juul Jørgensen, Director General for Energy, European Commission, followed by a fireside chat on the energy dimension of the European Green Deal and the future transatlantic energy agenda.

A conversation with:

H.E. Ditte Juul Jørgensen
Director General for Energy
European Commission

Moderated by:

Amb. Richard Morningstar
Founding Chairman, Global Energy Center
Atlantic Council

The European Union’s (EU) efforts to achieve a carbon-neutral economy present a unique and timely opportunity to strengthen European energy security and broaden transatlantic cooperation. The “European Green Deal” was proposed in 2019 and is Europe’s new growth strategy, which seeks to transform the EU into a climate-neutral economy by 2050. This objective builds on the commitments made by the EU under the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030 compared to 1990. Director General Juul Jørgensen will discuss the energy policy and energy security aspects of the European Green Deal in the context of the close transatlantic cooperation on energy.

Ambassador Morningstar and Director General Juul Jørgensen will discuss the specific ways the US and the EU can continue to work together in the areas of energy security, market competition, renewable and advanced energy technologies, financing strategies, and ways to tackle societal issues brought on by the net-zero energy transition and transformation of the energy landscape globally.

This timely discussion will take place at the Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, West Tower Elevators, 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20005). This event is on the record and open to the public and the media.
