The 15th edition of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) takes place from 23 to 25 June 2020 in Brussels. 

EUSEW - the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe - brings together EU officials, policy makers, and energy stakeholders from all across Europe to discuss and debate on sustainable energy issues, debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas. 

Propose a session for the programme

You have a chance to be part of the programme: the call for sessions during the EUSEW 2020 Policy Conference is open until 20 January 2020. 

The Policy Conference sessions should be interactive and fit in a 90-minute slot. The content should focus on sustainable energy issues, new policy developments, best practices and new ideas. The topic(s) addressed in the session should be in line with the EU sustainable energy policy agenda and the activities needed to deliver the 2030 and 2050 targets.

Proposals will be assessed based on:

  • Concept and focus
  • Relevance of the topic (content)
  • Quality of the agenda

Who can apply?

The proposals should be submitted jointly by at least two organisations - time to partner up!

Eligible organisations include:

  • representatives of EU institutions, including inter-institutional bodies;
  • energy stakeholders (with network of contacts across Europe)
  • actors contributing to the development and implementation of sustainable energy policy in Europe

This can include international organisations, university associations, networks of national, regional/local authorities, agencies, or other public bodies, as well as industry or professional associations, NGOs working in the field of sustainable development, or consumer associations/citizens' groups.

All sessions should be free of commercial interest. Businesses aiming to promote specific products or services are not eligible.
