Many lessons can be learned by the recent market trends in the European power sector, such as the consolidation of the European carbon market and the asset underwriting driven by the sharp and continued cost reduction of renewables, now fully competitive against coal.

During this discussion we will look at what path the US power sector is on in comparison with the European trends and what policies and technologies are driving the industry decarbonisation. We will hear from two major European and US power companies, which have all committed to achieve a Net Zero emission target by 2050, who will talk about their unique challenges, progress and future expectations.
