The EU aims to triple renewable energy and double energy efficiency by 2030 amid global challenges, including geopolitical tensions and the Ukraine conflict. Achieving ambitious goals requires comprehensive action on both the supply and demand sides, with industries adapting to meet carbon and sustainability targets.

Our mission statement

Our mission is twofold: we aim to bring politics and business together in order to provide them with an opportunity to debate and pursue their common goals, giving a voice to all sides of the debate. The other priority of EBS is to provide European institutions with a platform where they can place their top priorities in the spotlight and advance the development of new pieces of legislation through discussion with a variety of actors and stakeholders.
