summary

Digital technologies are set to make the European energy system more connected, intelligent, efficient, reliable and sustainable. Data collection and exchange are growing exponentially, creating digital threats but also valuable opportunities. In this rapidly evolving context, the European energy industry has both the challenge and the opportunity to reinvent itself. With this event, Bruegel aims at fostering a discussion about the industrial implications of Europe’s digital energy revolution, the new business models needed to make the best of it, and the policy frameworks required to facilitate all these developments.

Working Paper

How big is China’s digital economy?

The rise of influential Chinese digital giants, including Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent and Xiaomi has shown the world that China is a global leader in digital innovation and it is not surprising that China has started to influence the global digital market. But is China exploiting its full potential in this area? To answer this question, the authors assess how big China’s digital economy is relative to the rest of its economy, and how China performs compared to the rest of the world.

Cleaning up Europe's transport sector: which strategies?

Over the last decade, EU’s greenhouse gas emissions have decreased significantly in all sectors with the only exception of transport. This sector is thus becoming a key obstacle to EU decarbonisation and more aggressive policies are needed to decarbonise it. This event discussed the potential strategies to structurally address this issue, also on the basis of Bruegel’s new policy proposal in the field.

Are European firms falling behind in the global corporate research race?

The author looks at how concentrated corporate R&D is in Europe, compared with sales and employment. The US and China are more likely to produce new R&D leaders that take over some of the top positions from incumbent R&D leaders. How is the EU coping with technology shifts and creating the next generation of new leading firms?
