Central European Day of Energy focuses on innovative solutions for a smooth energy transition
At an event on 11 December in Brussels, organised by Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) in cooperation with the Commission's Directorate-General for Energy, innovative solutions on how to manage the sustainable energy transition in central Europe were discussed. This region, a growing economy with increasing energy consumption, is starting its energy innovation journey from a more difficult position than western Europe. Discussions focused on implementing policies that will allow these countries to continue their economic growth while ensuring a sustainable use of the energy resources and the attainment of all EU energy and climate targets.
The European Commission's Director-General for Energy, Dominique Ristori, commented:
Besides consolidating the regulatory framework and providing access to finance, the European Commission is focusing its efforts on developing and deploying new technologies that will drive the transformation of energy system in the EU. This is particularly important for the central European countries.
This second edition of the Central European Energy Day was supported by the International Visegrad Fund, in cooperation with partners from the Czech Republic (Masaryk University), Hungary (REKK), Lithuania (Kaunas University of Technology), Poland (Sobieski Institute), Romania (Romanian Energy Center) and Slovakia (SFPA) as well as Electric Vehicle Promotion Foundation from Poland.
