Growing year on year and now into its fifth edition, the European Union Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the reference event for sustainable energy issues in Europe. To date more than 120 events are already planned during the Week in Brussels and some other 270 across Europe. And this number is growing by the day.
