The 2023 edition of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will take place in Brussels and online between 20 – 22 June. EUSEW represents Europe’s biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe and the theme of this year’s edition is ‘Accelerating the clean energy transition – towards lower bills and greater skills’.
During the week, the solar heating & cooling sector will be featured in different sessions, both directly and indirectly. These are the key sessions to look out for:
20 June | 14:30 – 16:00
The session ‘Skills for Renewable Energy’ is co-organised by the European Commission and the participant associations of the recently launched Large Scale Partnership on Renewables which aims to provide workers with the skills needed for the manufacturing, installation, and management of renewable energy technologies to achieve the EU’s energy and climate objectives. The session will serve as a platform to present the skills partnership and attract new members to it and to discuss skills needs in the EU renewable energy sector and actions needed to ensure that adequate and sufficiently trained professionals are available for a fast, steady, and equitable deployment of clean energy solutions.
21 June | 11:30 – 13:00
The session ‘The beating heart of buildings: People!’ is co-organised by CAN Europe, Solar Heat Europe, and EFBWW and it will explore how buildings can contribute to the transition to an efficient and renewable energy system, and how deep renovations (either carried out in one-step or via a limited number of steps mixing envelope works and solar installations deployment) can ensure a fair job market transformation in the construction sector.
22 June | 09:30 – 11:00 (online)
The session ‘Citizen Energy: How to transition to community heating’ is co-organised by RESCOOP, Austria Solar, and EnergieSamen and it aims to give citizens, policymakers, and energy communities the know-how about citizen-owned renewables, and how to transition to collective heating and cooling. Moreover, it will offer practical information on Community District Heating, examples of it, and what we can do to replicate it across the EU.
We are pleased to invite you to attend these events, either in person or online. We also kindly ask you to share this exciting news with stakeholders in your network who are interested in gaining insights into solar heat and the current EU energy policy landscape and priorities.
Join us at EUSEW 2023 and be part of the conversation shaping the future of a sustainable and renewable energy sector in Europe!
