European Commission’s initiative EU Sustainable Energy Week (Eusew), which first took place in 2006, announced its 2015 Policy Conference will be held from 15 to 19 June in Brussels. The conference attracts energy experts, policy makers, representatives of the civil society and the media, and will focus on four main events, the organizers said.
The European Commission will hold several policy sessions on topics related to secure, clean and efficient energy. Energy stakeholders have also been invited to contribute. The Sustainable Energy Awards ceremony will reward three projects in three categories: renewable energy; energy efficiency; and cities, communities and regions. Finally, an interactive exhibition and networking village will support the three-day event. A series of side events also take place around the city, from June 15 to 19.
Energy Days are not-for-profit events that promote secure, clean and efficient energy. They can be any kind of activity — presentations, workshops, talks shows, exhibitions, concerts, games, quizzes or displays, the organizers say. The events must take place in a country of the European Union or in an associated country. They can be organized by private companies, public authorities, energy agencies, NGOs, cooperatives, chambers of commerce, industry and consumers associations, media, educational institutions, research and technological centers or other relevant actors playing a role in the promotion of secure, clean and efficient energy, Eusew’s website said.
