The Hawthorn Club held our first event in Brussels on Wednesday 21 June with Vice President Maroš Šefčovi. The Club got to hear from him and colleagues from the European Commission. The Vice President was very generous with his time spending over an hour with the Club- giving us a sweeping overview on his thoughts from his latest meeting with energy misters from around the world.

Club members had a robust conversation with Elaine O’Connell from the Directorate-General for Energy and Antonio Lopez-Nicolas Baza, Deputy Head of Unit Renewables and CCS Policy about the Clean Energy package. The slides they presented are below, along with a picture of the group and the Vice President.
