SEEnergy for Tomorrow is a new congress event with an associated exhibition that will replace the Energetika fair, which was held every other year in Celje until 2018.
It is an international event where every two years we will review the progress of the SE European countries in the green transition, cooperation between countries in this area, what tasks still remain, what obstacles we encounter, and how to remove them, what technological and legislative innovations we face, and compare examples of good practices between countries. It will be directed at both domestic and international political decision-makers, the energy industry, the economy, local communities, the media, and, to a lesser extent, households; in short, everyone who will be required to play an active role in the green transition.
Since we recognised this event as an important piece in the great picture of the Republic of Slovenia’s green transition, the Ministry of Environment, Climate, and Energy, on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia, became actively involved in the preparation and organisation of this event, and other ministries participating in Slovenia’s green transition will also participate in the international cooperation. We also included state agencies, organisations, institutions, and energy corporations that are actively implementing the green transition.
The Government of the Republic of Slovenia participates in the planning of this event along with the relevant ministries and state-owned infrastructure companies because Slovenia’s energy transition to a low-carbon society is one of the biggest challenges for the country’s energy industry, economy, and citizens and the largest project since Slovenia acquired independence.
The following topics will be addressed at the event in 2024:
- RES (photovoltaics, wind energy, biomass, cogeneration, etc.)
- Sustainable green mobility
- Energy digitization, connection, flexibility, and automation, including energy storage
- Geothermal energy
- Hydrogen technology and other gases used in the energy sector
- Energy communities
- A favourable environment (legislation, policies, incentives, funding options for energy projects, etc.)
We are also organising a gathering of competent ministers from this region to discuss cooperation between countries in one of the aforementioned sectors and other actors responsible for the green transition in these countries.
We also expect visitors from SE Europe (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Gora Gora, Macedonia, Kosovo…) because these nations experience many of the same energy challenges as Slovenia.
More information about the event coming after 10th November 2023.
