RePowerEU: Instrument for Accelerating Opportunities

23rd September 2022 | 9:30
Fundação Dr. António Cupertino de Miranda (Porto)


The European Commission's RePowerEU strategy aims to end Russia's energy dependence on natural gas by 2030 and advance Europe's decarbonization strategy, through a clear commitment to renewable energies and gases. The acceleration of solar and wind energy projects, combined with the production of green hydrogen for different end-uses, therefore seems to be a reality to be implemented quickly. Is it really so?

At this meeting, we listened to different views - from Europe, the Portuguese government, financers and the market - and promoted moments of dialogue between professionals involved in the energy transition underway. The initiative took place on September 23, in a hybrid format.

It was promoted by INEGI with the support of SMARTENERGY, and is part of the INEGI Advanced Training Program in Hydrogen Technologies and Economy.
