#EnergyUnion: What does it mean for Scotland, the UK and Europe? - Aberdeen, 15th May 2015
On Friday 15th May, Ian Duncan MEP was joined by Lang Banks, Director of WWF Scotland; Ian Scrimgeour, Director of the Aberdeen Institute of Energy; and Maggie McGinley, Director of Energy and Clean Technology at Scottish Enterprise to discuss the implications for Scotland, the UK and Europe of the move towards Energy Union.
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.
