European cable industry is determined to supply Europe with cable systems it needs to decarbonise

“European cable manufacturers are recognised worldwide technology leaders. The very substantial investment announcements made by the Europacable member companies are the bold confirmation of the industry’s determination to supply Europe with the cable systems it needs to deploy its decarbonisation plans”. This is the message, Mr. Marcello Del Brenna, chairman of the Europacable Energy Infrastructure Team, conveyed at the High-Level Roundtable on EU Grids organised by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Energy (ENTSO-E), in Brussels on 25 March.  
Mr. Del Brenna also added: “The industry remains committed to develop, with all relevant industry and institutional actors, common practices in terms of project processes, products and sustainability requirements to speed up the grid build-up and secure European manufacturing capacity and capability for a sustainable energy transition for Europe, made in Europe.”
The High-Level Roundtable saw the presence of high-level industry stakeholders and policymakers, including Ms Tinne Van der Straten, Belgium’s Minister for Energy on behalf of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the EU and Ms Kadri Simson, EU Commissioner for Energy, who discussed the implementation of the EU Grid Action Plan and the need for future policies. The High-Level Roundtable discussions will support future discussions within the EU Energy Council and will serve as an input for the next European Commission legislative mandate.
