The ACER IV Annual Conference focussed on how to achieve ‘An Energy Union for Consumers”. The event took place at the Brdo Congress Centre near Kranj, Slovenia, on Thursday, 9th July 2015.
Following the publication of the European Commission’s Energy Union strategy, the ACER Annual Conference aimed at identifying the benefits that this strategy will be able to deliver to EU energy consumers. Both European Commission Vice-President for the Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič and Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Angel Arias Cañete were at the Conference.
Following the welcome addresses on behalf of the host country, the European Parliament and the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the EU, the Conference was structured in three sessions focusing on how the Energy Union can ensure a new deal for consumers, how it can contribute to the integration of wholesale markets, as well as on the role of ACER within the Energy Union framework.
