Luxembourg Minister for Energy Claude Turmes will discuss clean energy transition at the LuxFLAG breakfast seminar on 13 March 2019 at Banque et Caisse d'Epargne de l'Etat (Spuerkeess).
The upcoming breakfast seminar focuses on the rapid global growth of clean energy technologies, falling costs of renewables and the stalling demand for coal, oil and gas, which are building the path for a clean energy transition. Such developments will inevitably lead to trillions of dollars of stranded fossil fuel assets.
Whilst renewable energy startups and green finance structures are starting to gain high traction among investors, one of the questions addressed at this event is how to make the change towards 100% renewable energy and which measures will Luxembourg take to become a proactive enabler and to make fast progress in the energy transition. Similarly, the seminar aims to address the question of how investments can be reoriented towards driving new, investor-friendly project development in order to help fulfil a climate-neutral Europe by 2050.
Interviewing Claude Turmes, on the topic of "Enabling the clean energy transition", will be Nathalie Dogniez, Member of the LuxFLAG ESG Label Eligibility Committee and Partner at PwC Luxembourg.
