A key aim on the agenda of Jean-Claude Juncker's Commission Presidency is "a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate change policy". As such, Energy Union has been at the forefront of discussion within the European Parliament. What are the policy implications of these discussions, and how will it make a difference to the everyday lives of people in Scotland?  The panel presented their thoughts, which was followed by a lively and informative discussion with the audience.
