The EU Strategy for Energy System Integration: what next? Ifri Green Deal Virtual Lunch Series

Faced with an unprecedented environmental, sanitary and economic crisis, the European Union is determined to turn the challenges into an opportunity: adopting the 750 billion EUR European recovery plan and making the Green Deal centre stage. 

The European Commission’s EU Strategy for Energy System Integration published on 08 July 2020 has been timely and critical: achieving climate neutrality requires connecting the missing links in the energy system. But with mounting costs, not least for the decarbonisation of electricity generation, the roll out of clean hydrogen and the electrification of end-uses, it is paramount that market rules incentivize a smart planning and operation of the system as a whole. 

Ifri’s webinar aims to discuss some of the policy adjustments needed to foster the smart energy system integration.

Chair: Marc-Antoine Eyl-Mazzega, Director, Center for Energy & Climate, Ifri


  • Marine Binet, Head of EU office, RTE
  • Malte Nyenhuis, Senior Adviser European Energy Policy, German Association of Energy- and Water Industries BDEW
  • Pierre Loaëc, Policy Officer, Directorate-General Energy, European Commission
