The INSIGHT_E consortium runs an Energy Observatory and delivers publications on energy policy, including: Energy infrastructure, New energy technologies and innovation, Economic, market and regulatory analysis, Geopolitics and trade, Climate and environmental impacts, and Societal and behavioral change.
The INSIGHT_E Observatory supports our publication cycle. It pools expertise from our advice network, provides means for stakeholders to participate in our programme of work, and supports outreach.
Faced with the complexity of the energy policy environment, INSIGHT_E has chosen to orient its Observatory towards the monitoring of the EU’s transition to sustainable and efficient means of energy production and consumption.
