Welcome to the third episode of a GOVTRAN ‘coffee-break’ interview podcast mini-series. The podcasts of this mini-series were recorded during the GOVTRAN workshop on ‘Appraising the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Policy Framework’ held at the Erik Castrén Institute, Helsinki, on 8-9 July 2019.

For this podcast, we had the pleasure to interview a delegation from Hasselt University: Bernard Vanheusden, Professor of Environmental and Energy Law; Theodoros Iliopoulos, Doctoral Researcher in Energy Law; and Matteo Fermeglia, Post-Doctoral Assistant in Environmental and Administrative Law. Reflecting on the high ambition level of the EU 2030 framework, the interviewees stress its main innovative aspects and the difficulties faced by member states to effectively implement it, as well as the potential of smaller-scale instruments such as net metering to incentivize the use of renewable energy sources among citizens.
