The North Seas Energy Forum brings together representatives of the public, private and non-governmental sectors in the Northern Seas region to discuss challenges and opportunities and the role of stakeholders in realising the region's full energy potential. It will be opened by Dominique Ristori, the European Commission's Director-General for Energy, and Nancy Mahieu, acting Director-General for Energy of the Belgian Federal Public Service Economy, SMEs, Self-Employed and Energy.
This Forum builds on the progress we made last year, when a Political Declaration on energy cooperation between the North Seas Countries was signed by ten countries. This declaration aims to facilitate the further cost-effective deployment of offshore renewable energy - in particular wind - through voluntary cooperation. This will help to promote energy interconnection between countries, and ultimately to achieve a sustainable, secure and affordable energy supply.
