Workshop on energy interconnection infrastructure as a key for increased security of supply
Infrastructure connectivity is the main topic of the workshop taking place in Brussels on Friday, 11 December, with the objective of ensuring supply and competitiveness. Among the participants will be key decision makers involved in planning, developing and financing energy infrastructure, policy makers, energy regulators, network operators and financing institutions.
The workshop will discuss current EU practices in developing a new energy interconnection infrastructure within the framework of the EU’s own goals for 10% interconnectivity by the year 2020. The speakers from INOGATE Partner Countries will share their own good examples, present their existing procedures and tools and identify and discuss the main hurdles that must be overcome for interconnecting their energy supplies.
