European symposium and parlamentarian evening: A Europe of Renewable Energies

In order to end the dependence on fossil and nuclear energies in Europe quickly and cost-effectively, comprehensive efforts and appropriate framework conditions are required. A New Energy Market Framework Regulation can enable European countries to move into the solar age and strengthen cohesion in Europe. On the occasion of our 30th anniversary, we are discussing the future role of Europe, its regions and citizens in the realisation of this task of the century. You can expect concrete impulses, joint discussions, a parliamentary forum and a varied supporting programme.

The Jubilee Symposium aims to help set the course for a 100 % renewable Europe. A Europe that helps states to realise their respective potentials, taking local differences into account. To this end, the production and distribution of energy must be decentralised and regional cooperation and municipal initiatives made possible. In order to carry out this task, new energy market regulations at the level of the member states and corresponding framework conditions in Europe are needed that place renewable energies at the centre of the market. Together with renowned speakers, various impulses, a parliamentary evening and the final evening reception we would like to renew Europe with you!


The symposium will take place on Thursday, 27 September 2018 at the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Berlin. The focus is on the positions and the cooperation of the European member states in the course of the energy transition and the overcoming of the dependence on coal, oil and gas in order to finance a solar Europe and to finally turn away from the nuclear industry.

Impulses from the EUROSOLAR sections and a parliamentary discussion forum are to be used for in-depth and practical discussions. The day will be rounded off with a joint evening reception and good entertainment. The comprehensive daily programme is available here.

The event is kindly supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and will be interpreted in German and English.
