    Cross-border cooperation is at the heart of the European energy challenge

    08-11-2022

    “We can only solve the energy crisis together, COVID-19 taught us this. We should not close borders like we did in that crisis, we should focus on true cooperation.” With those words, Dr. Tobias Traupel from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, summarized the essence of the HNP & ITEM Side Event on the acceleration of the energy transition through cross-border cooperation. We should not need a crisis however, to realize this, according to Dutch MEP Bas Eickhout: “Regional authorities understand this much better than national governments: if we want to do better, we have to work together.”
