We would like to invite you for the 6th Central European Day of Energy (CEDE) devoted to the topic of energy sector resilience in the time of transition. This year CEDE will take place on December 3rd in a hybrid form with the online audience. The event will be live-streamed on the CEEP’s website and on our YouTube channel.
The current energy crunch reminds us that the resilience of the European energy system is increasingly important as the EU energy system integrates more decentralised and intermittent renewable energy, and fossil fuels are gradually phased out. Energy security, as one of the five dimensions of the EU Energy Union, remains a priority, especially in the Central European region which has been seriously affected by supply disruptions in the past. The context of transition towards net-zero economy emphasizes new aspects of energy security, that can be accommodated in a wider framework of energy sector resilience. In addition to the issue of security of supply, resilience may include cybersecurity, resilience of supply chains (including critical raw materials and components), climate adaptation, electricity grid stability as well as the changes in climate and energy diplomacy. These topics are usually elaborated by different experts separately. In order to fully understand the complexity of the challenges we face we want to zoom out and discuss a wide spectrum of aspects of energy sector resilience across the whole value chain during a single event.
CEEP will also present a report on resilience of the electricity sector in Central Europe in the time of transition, which will serve as a food for thought during the Central European Day of Energy. More information you will find here.
