Mario Ruiz-Tagle, CEO of Iberdrola España and President of the Spanish Energy Club (Enerclub), took part in the presentation of the XXXIII Energy Awards, an event held annually to recognise the important work carried out by communication professionals and their contribution to bringing the world of energy closer to society.
During his participation in the meeting held in Madrid, in addition to acknowledging and thanking the dedication of the communication professionals, Ruiz-Tagle stated that "the energy transition is not limited to an environmental issue, but must also be the way to achieve a safer, more industrialised and more competitive Europe".
On the occasion, the CEO of Iberdrola España also highlighted the most relevant aspects of the coming months in Europe and in Spain: "regulation will be key to attracting investment, with special attention to streamlining administrative procedures, simplifying barriers and facilitating permitting for the agile and orderly development of new systems", also highlighting that "the Spanish presidency of the European Council will be especially important to build a favourable framework for the present and the future".
To achieve these commitments, Ruiz-Tagle also pointed out the importance of "bringing positions closer together and of a dialogue between the public and private sectors to join forces". And, above all, to ensure that society understands and supports what is happening, to speed up the process and make "this transition a just transition for all".
