On January 10 – 2017 a meeting entitled “Investing in energy consumers’ future” will be held as part as the program of the “Long Term Investment and Reindustrialization” Intergroup that aims to provide the European Parliament (EP) with an efficient horizontal tool supporting the activities of the relevant committees, enabling to develop an overview on these topics over the legislature 2014-2019.
