Press conference by Agora Energiewende

How were renewable energies doing in Europe in 2017 in terms of power production? What about last year's development of greenhouse gas emissions? Did consumers in 2017 use more or less electricity than in 2016? Which European countries are at the forefront of the clean energy transition? And which are not? What are the main trends to look out for in 2018?
We will address those and more questions in our annual report “Energy Transition in the European Power Sector: State of Affairs in 2017”.

The report will be published on 30 January 2018. We will present its main findings to the media on

Tuesday, 30 January,
12:15-1:45 pm,
at the European Climate Foundation,
Room Sun, Rue de la Science, 23,

The report has been compiled jointly by Agora Energiewende and Sandbag. Both Sandbag and Agora Energiewende are non-profit think tanks working in the power sector. Their joint research topic is the transition of energy systems towards decarbonised, secure and competitive power generation. The European Climate Foundation has offered to host this media briefing.
