The Vienna Energy Transition Forum, convened by the Institute of Energy for SE Europe (IENE) in partnership with the Vienna-based Energy Centre Europe (ECE), is bringing together some of the most progressive energy specialists from across Europe to discuss the critical energy and environmental issues and how these can be tackled as the region enters a decarbonization phase in line with EU goals and international commitments.

The Forum (Programme) will be held at the Hilton Vienna Plaza Hotel on June 6-7.

The broad purpose of the Forum is to bring together energy leaders from all different countries of South East and Central Europe and beyond, but also senior representatives from major international organizations and regional and international energy companies operating in the broader CEE and SEE region, the IENE said.

According to the Forum promoters, an impressive lineup of speakers, representing a wide range of disciplines and business interests covering the broad energy sector, will gather in Vienna for a two-day high-level meeting to discuss the challenges now facing Central and South East Europe arising from energy transition.

Issues such as the need to decarbonize power generation and yet maintain reliable baseload power generation, the role of gas as a fuel of choice, and the need for further renewables penetration under economically competitive terms will be openly debated in the Forum.

The EU ‘s decarbonization agenda and energy transition roadmap will come under scrutiny, as a bundle of factors will also be addressed, ranging from electricity market integration and grid performance to the slow pace of implementing vital gas interconnections and the role of nuclear power as a realistic alternative capable of delivering emission-free power generation, according to the IENE.
