EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2020!

The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will be back for its 15th edition on 23-24-25 June 2020. Find out the essential information and do not miss your chance to participate in the largest event on sustainable energy in Europe!

The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will be back for its 15th edition on 23-24-25 June 2020! The EUSEW is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power. It is the largest event on sustainable energy in Europe. 

The next edition of the event will be divided into four main pillars: Policy Conference, EUSEW Awards, Networking Village and Energy Days.

Policy Conference (23-24-25 June 2020)

The Policy Conference is the biggest European conference dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. Sessions organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders focus on sustainable energy issues, debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas. If your work supports an economy built on clean, secure, efficient energy, this event is for you. 

Applications for the Policy Conference will be open from the 19th of November until the 20th of January. Session proposals will have to be joint proposals from at least 2 different organisations, and include a maximum of 6 speakers.   

EUSEW Awards (23 June 2020)

The EU Sustainable Energy Awards recognise outstanding innovation in energy efficiency and renewables. 12 finalists will be chosen from a shortlist of the year’s most successful projects for clean, secure and efficient energy. Prizes will be awarded in four categories by an expert jury and by European citizens via a public vote. The Awards competition highlights new ways to shape Europe’s energy future and will culminate with the Awards Ceremony in Brussels on 23 June 2020.

Applications for EUSEW Awards will open from 26 November to 27 January.

Networking Village (23-24-25 June 2020)

The Networking Village fosters information-sharing and new connections to promote sustainable energy innovation. Public and private organisations have a chance to submit their contributions to feature in the networking area. Contributors and presenters are selected by the European Commission, with an emphasis on interactive activities that encourage audience participation:

  • about 60 half-day slots for Networking Stands
  • 22 slots for Energy Talks (15 mins presentation and 15mins Q&A)
  • 2 Energy Labs: 90’ slots – 3’ pitch in front of a panel of experts to take the project to the next level

The call for Networking Village activities will be launched in January 2020.

Energy Days – May and June 2020

Organised by local public and private organisations, Energy Days are activities and events that promote clean energy transition. Any activity can be an Energy Day provided it engages citizens and energy stakeholders in building the Energy Union. The only requirement is that your Energy Day takes place during May and June 2019 and that you submit it on time to benefit from greater visibility at the EU Sustainable Energy Week itself (17-21 June 2019). Activities and events take place throughout the EU Member States.

Register your local Energy Day event between January and June 2019.
