European energy markets are at a crossroads: on the one hand, they need to face the immediate shocks posed by the ongoing energy price crisis. On the other hand, the EU’s electricity market is gearing towards reform in 2023, which should make it fit to deliver a decarbonised power system by 2035.
The need for a strong, stable and resilient energy market in the short term must also consider long-term decarbonisation goals.
Join us in this live recording of the Watt Matters podcast, hosted at Eurelectric’s offices in Brussels, with support from Siemens and Linde, where we dive deep into the EU’s electricity market reforms.
First, we hear from the European Commission’s Director-General for Energy, Ditte Juul Jorgensen, as she explains how Brussels has been addressing the many challenges of the past 12 months. Then, we are joined in a debate with representatives from three of the EU’s most prominent energy trade associations: Kristian Ruby (Secretary General at Eurelectric), Walburga Hemetsberger (CEO at SolarPower Europe) and Giles Dickson (CEO at WindEurope). They tell us how the clean energy sector is preparing to take up the challenge and what it needs to see happen to accelerate the energy transition.
Enjoy the show!

Electricity networks are buckling under the impact of increasingly frequent and severe climate events. Given the amount of climate change already locked into the atmosphere, this is an issue that will only worsen, forcing assets and infrastructure to adapt. The tools to deal with the problem are available—but it will take a lot of money and political will to avert disaster
In this episode, we discuss with Next Energy Consumer CEO Marine Cornelis how to put citizens and our most vulnerable consumers at the heart of the energy transition
Following yet another round of COP negotiations in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, only limited progress again was made in the global effort to keep global warming limited to 1.5C. This week, the team discusses the value of these negotiations in the quest to avoid catastrophic climate change
