European Sustainable Energy Week 2016 puts consumers in the centre of the energy transition

 

The European Sustainable Energy Week 2016 is coming back to Brussels, with a Policy Conference taking place from 14-16 June.

The event is held annually by the European Commission and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises to discuss clean, secure and efficient energy. This year’s focus lies on shaping the debate about empowering consumers for an active role in the energy transition and the establishment of an Energy Union. Vice-President for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness Jyrki Katainen and Climate Action and Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete will open the event on Tuesday, 14 June and discuss how the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) is contributing to the modernisation of the economy and a sustainable, energy-secure and climate-resilient growth in Europe by supporting long-term decarbonisation objectives. In the evening, a ceremony will take place to award the best European stories in clean, secure and efficient energy among the categories of businesses, the public sector and consumers. For the first time European citizens will award their prize too. The EU Sustainable Energy Awards competition recognises projects helping to achieve EU energy goals, while hundreds of Energy Days events are taking place across Europe throughout June to engage citizens and energy stakeholders in helping to build and strengthen the Energy Union. These public events involve exhibitions, workshops, educational events and more.
