About CEDE

CEEP intends to build up on the success of the first edition and organise in cooperation with the European Commission the 2nd Central European Day of Energy.

The essential goals of the CEDE initiative are to provide comprehensive information concerning the ongoing transition of Central European energy sector driven by the implementation of new technologies. We aim to demonstrate how Central European countries are incrementally transforming their energy sector in order to contribute to the EU’s climate policy objectives and to comply with the Paris Agreement commitments. This comes as a self-imposed topic, since the first edition focused on the infrastructure needs in the region.

This year’s event will focus on the sustainable energy, innovation and modern technologies in Central Europe – renewable energy expansion, low emission technologies use, smart grids, energy efficiency projects, decarbonisation of transport sector (development of electromobility) that drive the energy transition. Furthermore, the event will address the most cost-effective strategies to develop a sustainable and environmental friendly energy sector in Central Europe.
