Fuel Cells Works, Europe’s Leading Renewable Energy Projects To Take Centre Stage At Sustainable Energy Europe Summit Next Week
  • The 2nd edition of the Sustainable Energy Europe Summit to take place on 28 – 30 September
  • Ministerial Keynote Addresses to be delivered by European policy leaders
  • Virtual networking will enable leaders around the world to connect and attend meetings

Europe’s extreme weather conditions observed in the past 12 months combined with the recent gas price surge highlight an urgent need to reform the continent’s energy sector.

To adequately respond to the rising energy demand after the pandemic and avoid further disruptions to businesses and households alike, policy makers are expected to place a strong focus on increasing renewable energy projects ensuring a more secure energy future in line with the ambitious climate goals already set by the EU Commission.

The challenge will be discussed in detail by several European Energy Ministers and key energy industry leaders who will share their current and upcoming policies and projects at the Sustainable Energy Europe Summit next week – a virtual event produced by the Sustainable Energy Council. Debates will reveal new business opportunities and policy announcements re-thinking the future of the energy sector in Europe.
