INSIGHT_E: An energy think tank informing the European Commission

INSIGHT_E provides decision makers from the European Commission with unbiased policy advice and insights on policy options, including an assessment of their potential impact. Moreover, it brings to the attention of policy makers new trends in technology as well as the objectives and activities of important stakeholders that have a key voice in European energy policy-making. The INSIGHT_E consortium is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of experts from the energy sector, who are experienced in delivering high quality policy advice and have access to a large network of stakeholders.

INSIGHT_E main activities are twofold:

  • We produce and share informative resources on European energy policy
  • We run the hereby INSIGHT_E Observatory which hosts our resources and monitors statistical indicators and qualitative signals of the EU transition to sustainable and efficient means of energy consumption and production.

The INSIGHT_E project is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (Grant Agreement no. m612743). It is coordinated by KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
