Changes to transform energy sector

The premises, analyses, and results presented in the Green Book constitute the basis for a public discussion and rethinking of the changes that are taking place and will completely transform the energy sector and the use of energy in the coming decades.

Changes are expected in the legal framework, sector structuring, business operations, system management, implementation of new technologies, construction of new infrastructure and strengthening of the position of the end-users, the Green Book reads.

The main cause of the expected changes is the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector as part of efforts to slow down climate change and adaptation of the society and the economy.
