APPLY FOR A SESSION: LEAD THE CLEAN ENERGY TRANSITION
Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is trying to move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power. The event is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in close cooperation with Directorate-General for Energy.
The EUSEW appeared to be an ideal platform for sharing ideas and for forging alliances to bring awareness about an Energy Union based on energy efficiency, decarbonising the economy, research, innovation and competitiveness by bringing together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers. The EU Sustainable Energy Week is an opportunity to meet stakeholders promoting energy efficiency and renewable energies, learn about successful policies and inspire innovation to meet the EU’s energy and climate goals.
