This event, which will take place on 1 February 2018 in Bucharest, Romania, aims to share best practices from Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria as well as other countries, on how energy efficiency investments can be financed. This includes the use of private funds and innovative financing instruments, notably in the building and industry sectors. Speakers will focus on practical experiences in developing and structuring investment programmes and the event will allow time for debate. The event contributes to the new cooperation on energy efficiency initiated by the CESEC.

Training of Photovoltaic Installers
The high photovoltaic market growth rates, further favoured by the EU supporting policies and the favourable national regulatory frameworks, may cause some concern to the PV industry due to the lack of adequately skilled workforce for PV installation and maintenance. Furthermore, the interested parties (manufacturers, developers, investors) seek skills certification and quality assurance in all phases of a PV installation (design, installation and maintenance).

The Smart Cities Conference is an initiative dedicated to open, inclusive, formal and informal dialogue on Smart Cities issues among all interested stakeholders.
