EU Energy Day at World Future Energy Summit focuses on clean energy and innovation
The next EU Energy Day, with the theme 'The EU's Clean Energy Future: From Technology Development to System Integration', will take place on January 16 2018 as part of the World Future Energy Summit, in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Co-organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and the EU GCC Clean Energy Technology Network, its main focus will be research and innovation on clean energy technologies. This event is part of a series of EU Energy Days, which was initiated at COP22 in Marrakesh.
At the event, the Commission will present the EU's priorities for accelerating clean energy innovation and the latest funding opportunities for the period from 2018 to 2020. There will be chances to discuss opportunities for international cooperation with other countries to enlarge the portfolio of available clean energy options, as well as working together with EU leading research organisations, companies and champions to advance the global competitiveness of renewables.
The EU Energy Day will also be a meeting place for European research institutions and innovative cleantech companies to share their breakthrough technologies, renewable energy solutions for consumers and prosumers, and new solutions that arise through the digitalisation of the energy system.
