Commissioner Simson participates in International Climate and Energy Summit in Madrid 

On 2 October, Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson (pictured) was in Madrid, Spain, to attend the International Climate and Energy Summit: Building a Grand Coalition to keep 1.5°C within reach hosted by the Government of Spain and International Energy Agency (IEA). The Summit will bring together energy and climate ministers from around the world just weeks before the COP28 Climate Change Conference, to build a coalition to accelerate momentum towards reaching the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. 

Commissioner Simson participated in ministerial sessions focused on enabling a just transition while moving away from fossil fuels, and how to rally countries around global targets for renewables and energy efficiency at COP28. The Commissioner also attended a roundtable conversation with representatives of governments, industry and civil society. 

Commissioner Simson also held a bilateral meeting with Teresa Ribera, Deputy Prime-Minister of the Spanish Government and Minister for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, to discuss current policy issues and ongoing legislative files, including the reform of the EU electricity market design.
