The 12th SET Plan Conference will be held from 12 – 14 June 2019, at the Politehnica University of Bucharest – Romania, under the auspices of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU and will be merged with the external ENVE (Environment, Climate change and Energy) Commission and Conference from the European Committee of the Regions, where more than 120 EU local and regional leaders are working on environment, climate change, energy and space policies. Local and regional authorities play a central role in the implementation of EU environment, climate change and energy policy.
The SET Plan & ENVE Conference in Bucharest will focus strongly on the interaction of different stakeholders with local and regional authorities on the road towards a clean energy transition. This will be accomplished by the strong involvement of the partners which will work together for this unique SET Plan & ENVE Conference edition:
Romanian Presidency of the European Union;
The 2050 Long-term strategy (LTS) communication is creating the foundation for Europe to have a robust roadmap towards climate neutrality by 2050. The outcomes of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels have clearly shown how relevant is for Europe and for the entire world that this strategy is successfully implemented. The SET Plan & ENVE conference will be a key moment for Europe to reflect on the EU 2050 Long-Term Strategy (LTS) in practice: a powerful opportunity to take stock of innovation in the field of clean energy transition and to discuss further steps on making the pathway to climate neutrality more concrete.
