The future of shale gas in Europe

15 October 2014, 15.00 – 17.00, registration and welcome coffee from 14.30

Stanhope Hotel, Rue du Commerce 9, 1000 Brussels


Shale gas has become one of the most debated topics in Europe the last couple of years. We are still awaiting the next steps from the European Commission. Even if the energy mix will remain a member state decision, a more integrated energy market must agree upon which energy sources would be considered sustainable and a welcome contribution towards the climate goals agreed upon. To take the next step we need to raise the question “which role could shale gas play and which risks are we facing if we accept an extensive use of Shale gas in Europe?”
