CEER Customer Conference 2024 Highlights Consumer-Centric Energy Transition
On 11 April, we welcomed around 250 participants both onsite and online to the CEER Customer Conference 2024. The conference was held under the theme “From Aspiration to Implementation: Delivering an Energy System Fit For All Consumers.” The discussions focused on identifying best ways to implement new EU frameworks to ensure a positive impact on consumers.
CEER President Annegret Groebel emphasised the vital role of European energy regulators in ensuring that new laws benefit consumers at the national level. She stressed the importance of adhering to the core principles outlined in the CEER-BEUC 2030 Vision for Energy Consumers as society and the economy shift towards decarbonisation and sustainability.
Baiba Miltoviča, President of the Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN) of the European Economic and Social Committee stressed the importance of energy as a public service, advocating for environmentally friendly, affordable, and reliable energy access. She emphasised championing collective energy self-consumption initiatives for a people-centred green transition.
