“Competitiveness and climate policy need not contradict one another”, E.ON CEO

January 23, 2014 - Energy

Leading environment journalist Sonja van Renssen is joined by Dr. Johannes Teyssen, CEO of E.ON and President of Eurelectric to discuss the potential for competitiveness within the 2030 Energy and Climate Framework.

Dr. Johannes Teyssen argues that competitiveness and the 2030 climate and energy strategy are not contradicting each other: “If climate policy is implemented efficiently, it can go alongside competitiveness – defending industrial base and jobs in Europe“.  According to E.ON’s CEO, one of the ways to foster competitiveness is the preservation of energy intensive industries: “We should not give them up, because energy intensive industries play a vital role in Europe’s economic value chain“.
