PCI Energy Days take place in Brussels on 19-20 March

Creation date: March 19, 2019

The event is launched by the European Commission and it's dedicated to the practical implementation of Projects of Common Interest (PCIs) - key infrastructure projects aimed at completing the European energy market in order to help the EU achieve its energy policy and climate objectives. The Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) is co-organising this event together with the Directorate General for Energy.

Take a look at the agenda and the exhibitors' list on the event website.

INEA's participation to the conference sessions

Director Beckers will officially launch the updated Transparency Platform for PCIs on the first day of the conference.

On the second day of the conference, Beatrice Coda, Head of Unit for Energy, will participate in a discussion panel on the ways to accelerate the implementation of PCIs.

The conference exhibition showcases 32 exhibitors

The conference's exhibition will showcase energy infrastructure projects who will share their experience on how to build future-proof and environmentally sound energy infrastructure by using innovative technological solutions, involving local communities and finding new approaches to financing. The ‘PCI Garden’ will open its gates on the first day of the event, giving participants the opportunity to network with project promoters, regulators and policy-makers

Grant agreement worth nearly €323 million to be signed
