The “Franco-German engine” has been a driver of European integration for many decades. The success of many joint initiatives was based, among other things, on the fact that they managed to find a compromise in many areas that other member states of the European Union (EU) could also agree to – despite some very different positions. In recent years, however, the engine has stalled. In the public debate, the differences between the two countries are all too often emphasised, not least on energy issues. At the same time, against the backdrop of globalised energy markets, fragmented supply chains and the increase in local conflicts in close proximity to the EU, transnational exchange and international cooperation are as important as ever. The World Energy Council offers a neutral platform for global networking and the exchange of knowledge on international energy issues. It is, therefore, particularly well-suited to initiate a dialogue between high-ranking energy experts from both countries, to promote mutual understanding, share different experiences and encourage cross-border cooperation. Together, the French and the German Members Committees of the World Energy Council are organizing the 1st French-German Energy Industry Dialogue on June 24 in Paris.

As part of an exclusive dialogue format at company level, we would discuss pressing energy issues in both countries as well as prospects for Franco-German cooperation in the energy sector.

The focus will be on a high-level industry exchange, bringing together French and German representatives of the members and associates of the Conseil Français de l’Énergie and the World Energy Council Germany (Weltenergierat) such as Ademe, Air Liquide, BRGM, CEA, CRE, EDF, ENGIE, E.ON, GASCADE Gastransport, IFP Energies Nouvelles; Open Grid Europe, RWE AG, TotalEnergies, UFIP Energies et Mobilités…
The dialogue will be moderated by Marie-Line Vaiani, Secretary General, Conseil Français de l’Énergie and Dr Carsten Rolle, Executive Director, World Energy Council Germany;
