The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will return in 2024, and the organizers hope Hungarian entrants may be among those competing next year and, who knows, even winning.

EUSEW is Europe’s largest annual gathering focusing on renewables and efficient energy use. It will be staged for the 18th time under the title “Net-zero Energy Solutions for a Competitive Europe.”

Ahead of the event, organizers from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy and the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) are calling on leading experts and innovators to submit policy session proposals for the conference (deadline Jan. 19, 2024), and for applications for the EUSEW Awards, honoring sustainable energy heroes in the categories of Innovation, Local Energy Action and Woman in Energy (deadline Feb. 1).

According to the organizers, Hungary is underrepresented at European awards, a fact they hope will change, especially with the upcoming EU presidency. None of the finalists in the last three editions of the awards were from the country.

“The European Sustainable Energy Awards competition is open to all, but we would particularly welcome interest from Central and Eastern Europe, including Hungary, which will be holding the rotating EU presidency from July 1, 2024,” says EUSew coordinator Raffaele Ferrando.

From June 11-13, 2024, the conference will be both online and onsite in the European Commission’s Charlemagne building and Martin’s Brussels EU Hotel. The three days include a high-level policy conference, the presentation of sustainable energy awards, the European Youth Energy Day, and an Energy Fair offering valuable networking opportunities.

At the European Youth Energy Day, young Europeans between the ages of 18 and 34 come together to share their visions for transforming Europe into the first climate-neutral continent, bringing their ideas, enthusiasm and fresh perspectives to inspire change and innovation.

Participants will also have access to independently organized Sustainable Energy Days, taking place in online and physical formats worldwide, from March to June 2024.
