About

Conference:

Next year Bulgaria will take over the Presidency of EU. As we all witness dynamic changes in the energy development of the region and also throughout all Member States of the European Union and the world, the Conference will give the opportunity to a plethora of stakeholders to discuss energy related issues with impact on both the region and EU.

The event will also aim at assisting the Bulgarian government to elaborate the priorities it will bring forward during the presidency, at raising the awareness of the challenges we all face in the shore and medium term and bringing together various parties to share views on the proposed topics.

The attenders:

We expect to have leading prominent speakers from across European Institutions, state administrations responsible for energy development planning, entrepreneurs, national regulators, power producers and energy traders, technology supply companies, consultants, NGOs and other think-tank organizations to give presentations and discuss on the issues of energy planning, energy storage, market coupling, liberalization and regionalization, energy efficiency, renewables, ETS, energy innovations, climate change, challenges to conventional power generation (nuclear and coal), etc.

We would be more than glad to welcome all of you in Sofia!
