    Needs and methods of public involvement in the energy policy field Adopted References: CESE 2366/2012 - TEN/503 Exploratory Opinion Rapporteur: Mr Richard Adams (Various interests - GR III / United Kingdom) Plenary Session: 488 - 20 Mar 2013 - 21 Mar 2013 The EESC will take a lead in establishing a European Energy Dialogue (EED), a coordinated multi-level, action-oriented conversation within and across all Member States. The programme will be ambitious and funded by stakeholders in the energy chain, linking with existing initiatives and gaining recognition as a trustworthy "social brand" responsive to public needs and concerns. The EED will be synonymous with reliable information about energy, and will offer a "negotiation space" where implementation issues can be discussed against a background of societal impact and acceptance, investment and resource strategy and other policy considerations. It will influence policy-making across all forms of energy and stimulate convergence at EU level, with strong links to the post-2020 energy and climate action framework. The EESC therefore recommends strong political and administrative backing for the proposed EED.

    Energy Roadmap 2050 Adopted References: CESE 1315/2012 - TEN/481 Referral - COM(2011) 885 final Rapporteur: Mr Coulon (Workers - GR II / France) Co-rapporteur: Mr Adams (Various interests - GR III / United Kingdom) Plenary Session: 481 - 23 May 2012 - 24 May 2012 The EESC notes with great interest the Energy Roadmap 2050 and its objective of providing a framework for the agreed policy of the substantial decarbonisation of the energy sector in Europe by 2050. The challenge is not only to achieve a sustainable and secure low carbon energy mix in a competitive market but to convince civil society that this is an attainable objective. The widest possible debate among the European public will be necessary and the Committee believes the Roadmap can be effective in launching this dialogue. But it must promote engagement at every level – personal, community, regional, national, at EU level and, in particular, with complementary global action.
