The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will take place from 26 to 30 September in a hybrid format under the theme ‘Going green and digital for Europe’s energy transition’. The European Sustainable Energy Week is one of the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. It consists of a series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, academia, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power.

As 2022 is the European Year of Youth, EUSEW will see a wide programme for and by a young audience with the third edition of the European Youth Energy Day and a series of Ideation Labs to trigger inter-generational conversations and seek inspiration from actions, visions and insights to further strengthen the European energy transition.

This year, the EUSEW will include:

  • Policy Conference with leading figures and a rich programme of sessions and debates on building secure energy for future generations in Europe (the call to organise a session is open until 24 March;
  • Prestigious EUSEW Awards, celebrating Europe’s champions in sustainable energy and renewables in four categories: Innovation, Local Energy Action, Woman in Energy and Young Energy Trailblazer (the call to run for the competition is open until 14 April;
  • Networking Village with physical and online stands, and a series of TED-like talks (calls to have a stand and organise a TED-like talk will open on 3 May);
  • A wide set of local Sustainable Energy Days across Europe from June to September (the call to organise an event will open on 26 April).
