Sustainable Energy Week 2013: Sustainable Energy Week 2013: Addressing the Barriers to Green Energy

DG Energy’s 2013 Sustainable Energy Week was held the 24-28 June in Brussels. Events were held at both the Charlemagne building as well as the Committee of the Regions. On its second day, Paul Hodson from DG Energy covered a session on ‘Towards EU 2020 and beyond’, and made some useful points on the barriers to promoting new attitudes towards financing regional green energy projects. Crucially, Mr. Hodson openly recognised that current EU regulations will need to be improved, and legal challenges overcome.
