The purpose of the Forum organised on 22 September by DG ENERG is the launch of the “Clean Energy for All European Islands Initiative“, which aims to accelerate the clean energy transition on islands, ensuring secure and cheap energy to their citizens, and create local jobs.

The Islands Commission, through its Executive Secretary, Mr. Giuseppe Sciacca, participated in the first panel and presented on behalf of the Presidency, the multi-annual Energy Programming of Corsica. Mr. Rui Bettencourt (Açores) and Mr. Adrian Mendoza (Canarias) also took part in the round table.

The Forum follows on from the commitments made by States at the signing of the Valletta Declaration in which the Commission called for a strong island dimension in the framework of European energy policy.
