Venice Forum - The European energy policy: enhancing security of supply by creating a single EU energy market?
On 21-22 June 2007, UniCredit and the Municipality of Venice, in association with Fondazione Venezia 2000 and "east", the international magazine of culture, politics and economics, are organising the second Venice Forum , a permanent European forum for debate to express assessments, analyses and prospects on the future of Europe. Venice Forum 2007 takes the theme "EU Energy policy: enhancing the security of supply by creating a single EU energy market?"
Energy policy is of primary importance to common EU interests. All EU members suffer the consequences brought about by climate change, increasing dependence on imports and rising energy prices. Sustainability, security and competitiveness in the energy sector require a common European response.
The EU is trying to implement a long-term energy policy that is both effective and harmonised, via the consolidation of a single European energy market and via a progressive diversification of supplier countries.
The conclusions of the two-day forum will feature the Nobel laureate for physics, Prof. Rubbia, and UniCredit Group CEO, Alessandro Profumo.
