EU Sustainable Energy Week 2018

Every year, the European Commission (Directorate-General for Energy and Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) organises the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) – the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. The 13th edition will take place from 4 to 8 June 2018 in Brussels at the European Commission’s Charlemagne building and at the Residence Palace. This year’s focus is ‘lead the clean energy transition’, and the week-long series of events will cover a number of activities with an EU-wide scope.


Everyone brings something different to EUSEW. It is an ideal platform for sharing ideas and knowhow, and for forging alliances to advance the Energy Union.

You can take part in the Week by:
