Don’t miss the
Don’t miss the one of the region’s leading gas conference. This year, the Budapest LNG Summit will be organized on December 6, live and in person at the Hotel Marriott Budapest. As an established regional conference, the Budapest LNG Summit is ideally placed to take a prominent role in connecting policymakers and the business ecosystem from Central and Eastern Europe and beyond by providing a platform to discuss the driving trends of the gas industry and to identify the opportunities and challenges ahead of us.
A global energy crunch sent natural gas prices soaring and hitting record highs in the past month. What are the factors that are fueling the price surge? What can we expect in the long run and what are the main lessons to take away? Major stakeholders of the gas and LNG industry including high-level representatives of MET Group, Shell, ExxonMobil, Gazprom, SOCAR, Dentons, CEEGEX, FGSZ, GTSOU and Eustream will review how the sector has coped so far with the challenges and adjusted to the new normal.

TownHall Europe, Sq. de Meeûs 5, Brussels; the event will be organised in a hybrid mode with online audience
Since 2016 Central
Since 2016 Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) has organised five editions of the Central European Day of Energy (CEDE) in Brussels. Each of them was focused on key issues regarding transition of energy sector and provided a Central European perspective to the Brussels’ debate on energy and climate policy.
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.
The 6th edition of CEDE will once again engage a wide representation of stakeholders, especially form Central Europe, and will provide a good opportunity to exchange ideas how the EU energy sector can secure its resilience in a cost-effective way, and at the same time fulfil its 2030 and 2050 climate commitments. During the event CEEP together with REKK will 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. The draft agenda can be fund here.

The Westin Warsaw Hotel and in the form of online transmission
The 34th EuroPOWER Energy Conference and the 4th OZE POWER will be held on November 17-18, 2021 in a hybrid formula: stationary at The Westin Warsaw Hotel and in the form of online transmission. Key representatives of the industry will meet for the second time this year
The main point of discussion during the inaugural debate will be the energy transition strategy and the pursuit of climate neutrality. Topics such as the goals of sustainable development and climate neutrality, the essence of the energy transformation, and challenges related to ensuring the security of energy supplies will be discussed. Then the speakers will analyze renewable energy in the context of the development and competitiveness of the Polish economy. There will also be issues regarding the social and economic potential of RES, increased greenhouse gas reduction targets, the usage of hydrogen in energy and transport, the Offshore Sector Deal, and the development of large solar farms.
An important topic will be the prospects and scenarios of activities in the field of the Polish energy mix until 2050. Experts will discuss the modernization and expansion of distribution networks and the role of natural gas in the transformation of the heating power industry.
The discussion on the second day of the congress will begin with the issue of the energy and economic potential of Polish wind. The speakers will consider whether the Polish power industry is ready for a digital metamorphosis. Issues related to the conditions of digital transformation in the energy sector, the use of modern technologies, challenges and benefits related to the implementation of the cloud in energy companies will be discussed.
The transformation of coal regions will be presented on practical examples. Modern energy companies will be analyzed in terms of new models and revenue streams, consumer awareness and the development of the energy-related services market, data use and process automation. The event will also include topics related to civic, local and distributed energy as well as systems and regionalization of support for the energy transformation.
EuroPower and OZE Power is a dialogue platform that is a place for public consultations between government representatives and all industry representatives. The aim of the conference is a substantive debate focused on the current economic and political situation, including the challenges of the energy sector and the development of renewable energy sources.
The congress is carried out as part of the activities of MMC Polska, which organizes prestigious congresses, conferences, workshops, and business training dedicated to managerial staff and company boards.

Central Europe Energy
Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) in co-operation with the European Commission (DG Energy) have already organised four editions of the Central European Day of Energy (CEDE) in Brussels. Your safety is our top priority and in light of the situation with the COVID-19, we will deliver our annual conference as a digital event.
The 5th edition of CEDE will take place on 2 December and it will focus on offshore wind development in Central Europe, particularly in the Baltic, Black and Adriatic seas. Wind energy has become a major driver for RES deployment in Europe and around the world – even if still more costly than onshore – seems fundamental to reaching Europe’s climate and energy targets in an effective way. In the 2050 Long Term Strategy, the Commission has identified wind energy as the dominant power generation technology by 2050, with projections of up to 450 GW of installed offshore wind capacity.
Today there is over 22 GW of installed offshore wind capacity in the European waters, of which around 2 GW is in the Baltic Sea and several projects are already advanced. The potential of the Black and Adriatic seas is also significant. The offshore wind sector grows rapidly, as new solutions for installations in deeper waters become available. Regional differences in potential, administrative procedures and public support are also of importance to be taken into consideration. EU support would probably be of pivotal significance. The CEDE is a place to take a closer look at all the aspects of offshore wind business in Central Europe and discuss different solutions.
Detailed draft agenda will follow soon. List of confirmed speakers so far:
- L. Jesień, Chairman of the Board of Directors of CEEP
- C. Sikow-Magny, Director of the Internal Energy and Market, European Commission
