Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) has won the ‘New Impulse 2015’ title. It is an award for institutions that bring new quality into the economy, and provide the energy sector with fresh impulses to develop. The award’s jury underlined that CEEP effectively represents the interests of energy and energy-intensive companies from Central Europe, and strengthens the region’s energy security within the framework of a common European policy. Five years after its foundation, CEEP has managed to integrate Central European firms and institutions who share the need for a stable legal environment and the security of energy supplies. As a result, CEEP has become an indispensable partner for the European administration, in the process of creating new regulations, that affect the sector of raw materials and energy. The ‘New Impulse’ awards all companies, institutions, and people of our region – from Lithuania to Croatia – who wish to build a stronger, more resilient and more competitive Europe. A Europe, whose growth is based on strong fundaments, such as affordable energy sources, well-developed infrastructure and the free flow of resources in the whole continent. Thanks to CEEP, producers and consumers of energy from Central Europe speak in Brussels with ‘one voice’. Indeed, this voice is already strong, which has been proved by progress in work on the Energy Union, and support for the North–South Corridor from representatives of the European Commission. We stand a real chance of infrastructurally integrating the whole continent, diversifying domestic energy markets, enhancing our industry’s competitiveness, and providing Europe with strategic security. These aims demand a broad coalition at the EU level. I am glad that, thanks [...]
Energa S.A. has just completed the construction of a photovoltaic farm just outside of Gdańsk and Przejazdowo, using 6,292 panels with a total capacity of 1.636 MWp, taking up an area the equivalent of three football fields (25,000 square metres). It is estimated that their production will be able to meet the electricity demand of more than 700 households. Investment for the farm - Poland’s largest – cost PLN 9.5 million, and the construction and assembly lasted two months, with the photovoltaic farm expanding the installed RES capacity in the Group’s power plants by approx. 0.5%. The firm also plans to build a photovoltaic farm in the Kujawsko-Pomorski region with a capacity of about 4MW. Solar power is an addition to Energa’s mix of renewable sources, which include; hydro, wind, and biomass; however, it still represents only a small percentage of the RES capacity installed in Poland, which totals nearly 6,000 MW. Mirosław Bieliński, CEO of Energa S.A. declared the photovoltaic farm in Gdańsk to be “an experimental investment”, but noted that: “photovoltaic technologies are growing less expensive at the fastest pace possible across the globe, and that is why Energa do not exclude larger-scale photovoltaic investments in the future.” Picture: Energa S.A. - Photovoltaic farm in Gdańsk [...]
In a few words
We represent the widely understood Central Europe energy sector (electricity generation, distribution and transmission, renewables, gas, oil, heat generation and distribution, chemical industries, etc.), universities and scientific institutions.
The Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum is the premiere international gathering of government, industry, and thought leaders to set the energy agenda for the year. Now in its fifth year, the Forum has emerged as the go-to energy conference to discuss the geopolitical and market issues confronting the energy industry in the coming year, develop new partnerships, and demonstrate thought leadership on global energy trends.
The 2021 Forum will have a special focus on the post-pandemic energy system, emerging net-zero carbon goals, the role of the Middle East in the energy transition, and the US’s energy and foreign policy priorities in the Biden administration.
Offered in a new virtual setting, the 2021 Forum will feature our Atlantic Council conference app that allows participants to network directly with one another, ask questions during live events, post on virtual boards, and connect with featured sponsors. The latest agenda is posted on the website and the list of confirmed speakers can be found here
