This is followed by words of Mikuláš Peksa, who is a  member of the European Parliament. He will elaborate on the European energy policy and the influence of Brexit. We finish day one in Paris with the expertise of the International Energy Agency, who will share insights about the influence of COVID-19 on the energy policy.
