Building the future of energy is a shared responsibility. Slovenia’s national energy and climate targets, the urgency of the energy transition, and the much-anticipated economic recovery after the covid-19 pandemic are some of the challenges that can only be met with active cooperation from, and collaboration across energy sectors and systems, and a well-designed and well-implemented energy policy adopted by state institutions.

The Slovenian Energy Association (SZE) aims to make a substantial contribution to assisting energy stakeholders in their mutual collaboration and their engagement in local and regional/European development processes, thus to help lay the foundations for national development projects and applications.

To encourage collaboration and an exchange of opinions, we are organising

a panel discussion titled ENERGY SYSTEM INTEGRATION.

The event will take place on Tuesday, 23 March 2021, at 9:00 am via Zoom.

The event is intended for anyone working towards a sustainable and efficient energy future.
The panel is free, but pre-registration is required.
