Energy Union: Vice-President Šefčovič on official visit to Denmark

Today, Vice-President for the Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič represents the Commission at the 16th Inter-Parliamentary Meeting on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency at the Danish Parliament where he delivers the keynote speech at the session “The Foreign Policy Dimension of Energy transition”.  Vice-President Šefčovič will also meet with the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs Kristian Jensen. Besides, he visits the European Environment Agency (EEA) which is headquartered in Copenhagen. In the framework of completing the Energy Union, the EEA is among others responsible for providing data about the performance of EU Member states when it comes to the agreed emission-reduction targets. “The Energy Union, in its effort to bring about in Europe a transition to a modern and low-carbon economy, needs to ensure that Europe remains resilient to geopolitical challenges – while at the same time push and help other economies to modernise their energy systems“, said Vice-President Šefčovič ahead of the visit.
