(23 November 2020) In the framework of the Right to Energy Forum (more information below), EPSU will organise a workshop on “Going public: the way forward to end energy poverty? The failure of energy market liberalisation” on Wednesday 2nd of December, from 17h00 to 18h30.
We will explore the impact of liberalisation on energy prices, public ownership and the role of public service as a way to fight energy poverty.
EPSU general secretary, Jan Willem Goudriaan, will be joined in the panel discussion by:
- Dr. Vera Weghmann, professor at Public Services International Research Unit (PSIRU) at University of Greenwich. She is the author of the report “Going Public: A Decarbonised, Affordable and Democratic Energy System”
- Dr. Sean Sweeney from the School of Labor and Urban Studies at City University of New York / Coordinator of the international network Trade Unions for Energy Democracy
- Lavinia Steinfort, researcher at the Transnational Institute (TNI). She is working on public alternatives such as (re)municipalisation of public services, a just transition towards energy democracy and transforming finance.
Come and join us to share your experience on liberalisation processes, public service missions and the fight against energy poverty!
