The Jean Monnet EU-Canada Network is pleased to host an international policy workshop, “Clean Energy and Climate Policy in Canada and the EU: An Exchange of Experiences, Views, and Visions for the Future,” on Friday, February 9, 2018, at Carleton University. This policy workshop will examine how achieving a sustainable transition from high to low carbon production in the energy sector has been carried out in the EU and in Canada. In particular, issues of energy market integration in multilevel governance systems (such as in the EU and the Canadian federal system) will be examined by notable scholars. Issues of economic competitiveness of green energy systems will also be explored.
The event will feature experts from Canada, U.S. and Europe. This event is open to the public and registration will be requested.
