8000 Bruges

On Tuesday 15 June 2021 (14h00-17h45 CET), the IBERDROLA Manuel Marín Chair for European Energy Policy will host its annual conference, entitled "The Great Transition: How to get to carbon zero 2050?".

With the world’s largest economies committing to carbon zero, the momentum behind climate ambition is growing globally. The EU has stepped up to its role as a climate leader, and will enshrine its goal of climate neutrality by 2050 into its Climate Law. According to the IEA’s recent ‘Net Zero by 2050’-report, there is a viable path to achieve this objective, yet the path is narrow and requires an unprecedented transformation of the energy sector. This will require innovation and system-wide thinking from policy makers and practitioners alike.

We invite you to join us as we explore this path to 2050 with a prestigious line-up of speakers:
