High-level session

Our high-level session started with Maroš Šefčovič speaking about the Energy Union a few hours after announcing the adoption of a list of 195 key energy infrastructure projects - known as projects of common interest – which will help deliver Europe’s energy and climate objectives and form key building blocks of the EU’s Energy Union.


We had the joy of welcoming Jeremy Rifkin, Founder and president of The Foundation on Economic Trends and bestselling author of 20 books to our event. He spoke via live video link about his theory of The Zero Marginal Cost Society. You can hear him reacting to Vice-President of the European Commission Maroš Šefčovič's speech at the beginning. The moderator was Stephen Sackur from the BBC.

The next speaker was Commissiner for the Digital Economy & Society Günther Oettinger, with a video message on Industry 4.0. Watch it here.
