Towards2030-dialogue and TRANSrisk co-organised a Regional Workshop "Towards a Low-Carbon European Union – The Case of Greece" at NTUA premises in Athens on the 25th of October 2016.
 
The Workshop brought together 43 European and national policy makers, TSOs, DSOs, utilities, RES associations, business and industry, industry and consumer, academia and civil society organisations, communicators and other public and private relevant actors to review together climate change policies and defined jointly the EU objectives, requirements and risks, especially regarging RES policies.
 
The workshop established a Towards2030-dialogue and TRANSrisk partnership that mutually and jointly contributed in order to increase dialogue and appropriate incorporation of stakeholders' feedback in issues towards a Low-Carbon European Union.
 
The workshop was organised along a series of oral presentations and round table discussions. 
More emphasis was put on policy challenges and pathways for meeting the 2030 RES target, with a special focus on the prospects and challenges of Greece towards a low carbon future. All participants to the workshop were requested to make an intervention and participate in an interactive stakeholder discussion dedicated on solar power and building systems in Greece.
