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:

The aim of the Conference is to contribute to scientific and expert discussion on energy policy, energy security, and the wider energy sector.
The plenary panels held on the first day of the Conference will refer to the topics of contemporary challenges of energy security in the face of global transformation trends in energy sector. The speakers will discuss the diversification of energy sources and directions of energy supply as well as the need for infrastructure development. In this perspective, the debate will focus on the security of supply of raw materials, in particular of natural gas, to the countries of the so-called Three Seas Initiative. The questions, which the participants of the debates will try to find the answers to, include the concern whether the CEE region can be strengthened in its energy resistance through the development of energy infrastructure as well as how the directions of gas supplies should be diversified in the era of energy transformation?
Parallel to the plenary panels in the afternoon sessions, there will be held the discussions on the existing threats affecting the energy sector, which consists of energy supply systems, resources and fuels. These threats will be considered in terms of sabotage, terrorism and information activities.
The conference will also refer to the global transformations affecting the energy sector, and in particular the European Union’s aspirations to become a world leader in energy transformation and the use of climate-neutral technologies. The analysis of these issues will be devoted to a panel pointing to the energy sector as a source of innovation. In particular, the debate will address the development of smart cities and the use of artificial intelligence for this purpose.

As discussions on recovery strategies from the coronavirus crisis intensify, now is the time to ensure that the measures taken will lead to a sustainable and climate-neutral economy, while providing regions and sectors with the support they need in the transition. The COVID-19 crisis with its economic repercussions also casts a new light on the European Commission’s proposal for a Just Transition Mechanism (JTM), and the Just Transition Fund, which have been promoted as instruments to assist those regions and sectors that are most affected by the energy transition. With the economic slowdown and re-opening of the multi-annual financial framework shaking up the original plans, this Policy Dialogue will discuss the role of JTM, and especially the Just Transition Fund, in facilitating the transition to a climate-neutral economy that will leave no one behind.

Our speakers will reveal the updates and future challenges on the Capacity Market and the block of regional case studies will help you to learn more about different capacity mechanisms and its implementation.
Attendees will have the opportunity of networking with experts in the field while learning and sharing analytical views of the topic address the main changes and regulatory recommendations for capacity mechanism with Industry leaders, transmission system operators, representatives of DSOs, professionals from governments and researchers.
In order to maintain a high level of security of supply, capacity mechanisms are proposed as a measure to ensure the desired supply level by encouraging investments from both supply and demand side.
Since more renewables are integrated into the grid, closer regional and European integration must grow at the same level as Renewable energy. Reality shows that renewables are growing faster and there is still the need for better investment in grid infrastructure. Since only 5 percent of EU investment can cover the needs, companies have to find smart methods in order to ensure stable growth of the grid.
Key Practical topics of the Summit:
- The latest developments on capacity mechanisms from a European perspective
- European Resource Adequacy Assessment: Towards the Implementation of the Clean Energy Package
- Evolution of the French capacity mechanisms
- Evolution of CRMs in the US
- Developing common rules for cross border participation
- Adapting strategic reserves to the requirements in the Electricity Regulation
- Overview of recent capacity auction results
- Evolution and Status on the Portuguese CRM within the Iberian Markets
- Updates on the Danish electricity Market
- Status on the Belgian CRM with a focus on the least-cost design approach followed
- Great Britain’s Capacity Market: challenges & opportunities

Permanent Representation of Poland to the EU, Avenue de Cortenbergh 16, 1040 Brussels
The revision for the fourth phase of EU Emissions Trading System (2021-2030) introduced a number of important changes concerning funding mechanisms in the system. Existing mechanisms – the Solidarity Provision and Article 10c Derogation – were updated, and new instruments – the Modernisation Fund and the Innovation Fund – have been introduced.
The delegated regulation for the innovation fund was adopted in February and eligible member states communicated their decision to (not) use Article 10c derogation by June 30 by publishing a competitive bidding process and a list of small projects. By September 30, Member States also have to communicate their decision with regard to the use of the flexibility to move allowances between the various funds, and the European Commission is expected to put forward its draft implementing act establishing the Modernisation Fund before the end of the year.
The European Roundtable on Climate Change and Sustainable Transition (ERCST), together with the Central European Energy Partners (CEEP), has been working this important topic for over a year. An event was organised last year in September in Brussels, where a paper was presented discussing the questions and issues that will need to be clarified during the implementation phase.
Over the course of 2019, ERCST and CEEP have been working closely with Member States and stakeholders to deepen the understanding of the regional priorities for the use of the funding mechanisms. Four workshops were organised in Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and the Czech Republic; and surveys and interviews were carried out with Member States and stakeholders.

- Development of renewable energy sources and integration of RES in the energy system from conventional generation sources
- Potential and conditions for the development of energy storage facilities, available technologies and functionalities
- Importance of LNG in the process of transformation of the energy sector
- Electromobility – development conditions, availability of charging infrastructure, possibility of battery production in Polanda
- Offshore wind energy – success factors for the construction of offshore wind farms in the Polish Baltic Sea zone,
experience from other countries, technology development, legal framework and support mechanisms
- Conditions for the development of solar energy – how to implement the assumed participation in the energy mixi
- Digitization of energy and the use of artificial intelligence
We have invited Mr. Mateusz Morawiecki, the Prime Minister of the Council of Ministers, to appear as an honorary guest at the 5th Energy Congress.
