Creating Tomorrow’s Energy System Today

Under the theme “Creating Tomorrow’s Energy System Today,” Ministers, policymakers, project developers, investors and innovators will engage at a 3-day high-level strategic conference, sharing insights into transitioning the European Union’s energy system to one based on renewables and in line with the REPowerEU initiatives. Showcased across the exhibition's hydrogen & decarbonisation, solar and innovation zones are the products and projects that will deliver this cleaner, greener energy system.

The three programmes for the Strategic, Hydrogen & Decarbonisation, and Climatetech Conferences will cover the entire energy value chain at this crucial stage in its transition to net zero, with discussions on enhancing Europe’s energy security and decarbonising its energy supply.
