“How can European policy makers develop a more balanced energy and climate policy to preserve Europe´s industrial competitiveness up to 2050?”

The European steel industry is under threat today…..


…..just at that time as it is needed most. Climate change policy needs tons of steel to built up wind-towers or solar energy plants.
