Countries throughout Southeast Europe have high shares of electricity generated by an aging fleet of coal-fired power plants. Within the next decade, utilities and governments will decide whether to modernise or replace roughly 50 percent of the installed coal plants.
Our conference aims to look at the bigger picture of the regional energy transition, assessing the status quo and discussing options and requirements for clean, secure and affordable energy systems. It shall support a fact-based dialogue on the energy transition in Southeast Europe and create a space for making inclusive alliances comprised of governments, EU institutions, think-tanks, NGOs and citizens.
The conference is part of two ongoing multi-country energy transition projects: The South East Europe Energy Transition Dialogue and the Western Balkans Energy Transition Dialogue (please find more details below).
We are currently inviting speakers and panelists and will publish the full agenda beginning of October. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter in order to receive regular updates on our events.
