Welcome to Day 2 of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2022. As Europe looks to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, the REPowerEU plan is a vital step towards accelerating the green transition. Today’s two keynote speeches will set the tone for dedicated sessions getting to the heart of this ambitious EU policy plan, and highlighting the role of digitalisation in making it a reality.
