European Sustainable Energy Week kicks off!

Europe’s biggest annual renewables and energy efficiency event begins as the European Sustainable Energy Week kicks off today. The event is dedicated to green energy, and will last three days. The event has several purposes:

  2. Increase Europe’s energy independence,
  3. Provide an opportunity to meet stakeholders promoting energy efficiency and renewable energies,
  4. Learn about successful policies,
  5. Inspire innovation towards meeting the EU’s energy and climate goals. 

Who will be attending?

Across Europe, NGO’s, policymakers, consumers and industry figures will be travelling to Brussels for the event. The event begins this morning with a keynote speech from Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson.

Like many post-pandemic events, the conference can be attended in-person or online. Attendees are a mix of policy leaders, citizens, and businesses. The event aims to promote Europe’s decarbonisation efforts through green technologies.
