European Union Energy Day: EU's Clean Energy Future: From Technology Development to System Integration, organised by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy, will take place on 16 January 2018 at the World Future Energy Summit, ADNEC, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This workshop is part of a series of EU Energy Days, which was initiated at COP22 in Marrakesh.
On 27 October 2017, the European Commission presented its latest work programme for its transitional research and innovation programme "Horizon 2020", which has earmarked EUR 2.2 billion for clean energy.
During this event, the Commission will present EU's priorities to accelerate clean energy innovation, the latest funding opportunities for the period from 2018 to 2020, and discuss opportunities for international cooperation with other countries to enlarge the portfolio of available clean energy options, to bring down costs, and to work together with EU leading research organisations, companies and champions to advance the global competitiveness of renewables.
Together with the EU-GCC Clean Energy Technology Network, the EU Energy Day will also be a meeting place for European research institutions and innovative cleantech companies to share their breakthrough technologies, renewable energy solutions for consumers and prosumers, and new solutions through digitalisation of the energy system.
