Tuesday, November 13, 8.30 to 18.00, French Senate, 15 ter rue Vaugirard, Paris 6 : Euro-CASE Annual Conference

With the net daily demographic growth of 170 000 people, energy is an incontrovertible and an ever more precious resource every day. It is generally thought that over the next decades, the world will face a considerable increase in global energy demand. If Europe wants to be a significant collective player, economically competitive, if Europe wants to preserve the social and environmental quality of life of its population, it has to define its medium and long term strategies to preserve its energy security and to assure its energy independence.
