The European Union has the ambition to be a global leader on renewable energy. With its 2030 targets for renewable energy and energy efficiency and its long-term commitment to the decarbonisation of its energy system, the EU has established the world's most ambitious and comprehensive set of policies and regulations.
This has allowed European companies to innovate, bring down costs, become pioneers and export their skills and products around the world, from energy efficiency technologies to offshore wind.
Since 2016, the European Commission has been organising EU Energy Days in order to present the EU's experience in promoting clean energy and its upcoming initiatives, share knowledge and expertise with international partners and give networking opportunities to businesses, innovators and investors.
