Central European Day of Energy (CEDE)


Central European Day of Energy (CEDE)



The essential goals of the first CEDE event are to provide comprehensive information concerning the Central European (CE) energy sectors, as well as focusing on those companies- requiring joint support. The aim is to establish a forum for useful networking, discussing energy infrastructure issues, especially in relation to North-South Interconnections in the CE region, and linking the EU with Eastern countries, such as Ukraine. Additionally, the forum intends to facilitate and promote the development of closer co-operation, in the field of energy security, among the key institutions and industrial stakeholders from our region, with the EU’s policy decision-makers.

This first edition taking place on December 9 2016 will be focused on the dimensions of the infrastructural needs in the CE region, including the V4 countries, from the perspective of CEEP’s analytical reports.

The event is organised by Central Europe Energy Partners, in co-operation with partners from the CE region and V4 countries, in the premises of the European Commission (Brussels), under the auspices of the Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of Energy Union, the Slovak Republic’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and the Polish Republic’s Presidency of the V4.

The main benefits for attendees will include information concerning:  approaching and dealing with the most important issues related to CE’s (and V4 countries) energy sectors; and a thorough review of the major issues in the CE energy field. The main scope of the discussions will focus on energy infrastructural needs, along with a general assessment of CE’s energy sectors, harmonised with European policies.

The key conclusions of the CEDE will be collected and presented in the subsequent Position Paper, and submitted to the EC institutions, the national administration of V4 countries, as well as managers and decision-makers within CE industries.

CASE experts will be actively involved in the phase of Position Paper preparations as well as the event itself.
