Regional Energy Security

The new European Commission energy security proposal emerged as the need for secure and sustainable energy supply surged. The proposal intends to repower the European Union and accelerate the European Green Deal. Repowering entails a significant increase in investment in renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydrogen. With the support of the European Commission, we are dedicated to aligning our business decisions with those that will expedite the sustainable transition and repower the European Union.
