From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Watt Matters is a podcast all about the energy transition and the shift to a decarbonised economy.

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!
