  • DATE OF THE EVENT: June 11-13, 2024
  • TIME:
  • LOCATION: Brussels, Belgium & Online

The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. It is organised by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) and the Directorate-General for Energy.

With 7 plenaries, 60 plus policy sessions, Energy Fair stands and the fifth edition of the European Youth Energy Day, EUSEW 2024 is set to be at the forefront of the discussion on energy transition.

Sessions organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders will focus on sustainable energy issues and debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas. Alongside the conference, networking opportunities will bring together the EUSEW community to forge connections, while the EUSEW Awards will celebrate outstanding individuals, projects and ideas.

During the conference, the fifth European Youth Energy Day will bring together young people aged between 18 and 34 to share their ideas on how to transform Europe into the first climate-neutral continent.

The EUSEW 2024 will take place in a hybrid format online and in Brussels at the European Commission’s Charlemagne building and the Martin’s Brussels EU Hotel from 11-13 June.

Following the European Parliament’s resolution for a European geothermal energy strategy, representatives of the European Commission, Member States, industry, research institutes and civil society will discuss the challenges, benefits and opportunities for the mass deployment of geothermal to achieve EU climate goals.

The challenges to be addressed are: structures to share national actions to increase geothermal investments; effective implementation of newly agreed permitting rules; uptake of innovative business models; skilling the workforce.

The opening section will tackle political issues starting with the main elements of a European geothermal strategy, proposed by the European Parliament’s resolution, which was agreed in January 2024. This will be complemented by the views of DG Energy, which set a target to triple geothermal capacity by 2030 and recently revised regulations for renewable energy and energy efficiency to this effect.

The second section will incorporate the needs of project developers and manufacturers as well as civil society, and will also showcase how recent pan-European scientific initiatives can support and inform policy decision-making to accelerate and increase the share of geothermal in the green transition.
