About the symposium

On 30 November 2016, the European Commission’s long-anticipated “Clean Energy For All Europeans” package, was released.

ClientEarth and the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) would like to invite you to their Winter Package Symposium on the key issues and challenges around these new proposals.

The Symposium is designed for policymakers, NGOs, interested trade associations and EU institutional stakeholders. It will address the legislative proposals from the Winter Package aimed at reforming EU Energy Market Design and integrating energy from renewable resources.
