How Can New Transatlantic Collaboration Overcome Barriers to Renewable Energy Goals?

How Can New Transatlantic Collaboration  Overcome Barriers to Renewable Energy Goals?

On Thursday, December 3, 2015, the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS) and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) held a  briefing to discuss how all levels of governments in the European Union and United States can expand collaboration on renewable electricity market penetration to meet energy, economic, and environmental needs. The briefing featured an upcoming report by CCS, funded by the European Union Delegation to the United States, which examines high-priority common challenges and opportunities in the renewable energy sector that are prime candidates for new or enhanced forms of transatlantic collaboration at the regional and Member State/U.S. state levels. Attendees were invited to provide comments and input for the report and discuss how enhanced transatlantic cooperation can help set the stage for new investments and technologies through greater thought leadership, information sharing, technical assistance, and collaboration.
