Energy cost is critical to the competitiveness of many firms. To reduce energy cost, firms can focus on reducing energy use, switching to cheaper energy sources, and increasing energy efficiency, but they also need to understand energy policy and the threats and opportunities it creates. Renewable energy and capacity mechanisms are important, but controversial elements of European energy policies and the EU emissions trading scheme (ETS) continue to pose challenges. A sound corporate energy strategy should take the whole picture into account.

Key learnings 

  • Making the right energy choices to help competitive positioning
  • Opportunities offered by renewable energy policies and long-term advantages
  • Opportunities/challenges in different countries and across industries, and their impact on the competitive landscape
