Under the title "Watt’s Next? New Players, Products and Peers”, Eurelectric held its annual conference on June 4-5 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The event proved more than rewarding for the 500 plus delegates who gathered from all over Europe to participate in this year’s foremost electricity industry event.

Business disrupters and industry captains challenged the mind-set of power sector leaders and triggered participants to look into the future. This year’s event posed critical questions such as, What is the potential of increased use of digital platforms across the energy system? What does it take for industry players to integrate sustainability objectives as ultimate business goals? How will the accelerated decarbonization of electricity speed up the decarbonization of other sectors? What solutions will future energy companies offer to enhance consumer relationships and engagement?

These were just some of the key items that were tackled over the two days by high-calibre speakers in a mix of keynote speeeches, interactive panel discussions and live demonstrations of new and upcoming products and technologies. IENE participated in the special session on "Powering Transition Investments in SE Europe” which was organized in the second day of the Eurelectric conference and was moderated by Anna Dimitrova, Advisor, Energy Policy and Generation at Eurelectric.

More specifically, IENE’s Executive Director, Costis Stambolis participated in the panel discussion on "The Clean Energy Investment Challenge for the Region” which was chaired by Janez Kopac, Director of the Energy Community. Costis stressed the need for radical change in the energy policies of most countries in SE Europe since under present conditions planned and ongoing projects on coal/lignite power plants far exceed investments in renewables and energy efficiency. "The European Commission has an important role to play in this much needed energy transition, but the strategic goals it has set have no chance of being implemented by individual countries in SEE, including Western Balkans, in view of policies and methods currently pursued”, underlined IENE’s Executive Director in his remarks.
