A discussion with Director-General for Energy Ditte Juul Jørgensen

  • Dinner debate in Strasbourg

Chaired by Jerzy Buzek MEP, President of the EEF

Introductory remarks by Inese Vaidere MEP, Vice-President of the EEF

Speaker: Ditte Juul Jørgensen, Director General for Energy, European Commission

In Strasbourg yesterday, the EEF finally hosted its first in-person dinner: a high-level energy debate with EC Director-General for Energy Ditte Juul Jørgensen.

We had a very timely and lively exchange on RePowerEU as well as on ways to rapidly strengthen EU energy independence, safeguard security of supply and accelerate the energy transition. The Director-General stated it clearly: the EU faces great challenges that it will be able to overcome acting with unity and solidarity.

A warm thank you to her for this valuable exchange, to EEF President MEP Jerzy Buzek for chairing the discussion and to EEF Vice-President MEP Inese Vaidere for her introductory remarks.

Also, thanks to the many EEF Members and MEPs present for sharing their thoughts and questions!
