eusustaFrom 18 to 22 June, more than 30,000 participants will discuss energy efficiency and renewable energy in all their forms during the 2012 edition of EU Sustainable Energy Week (

EU Sustainable Energy Week is a wide and popular European movement to encourage sustainable energy. It is organised by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) on behalf of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy.

So what’s happening during this year's EUSEW?

The Week will host a high-level policy conference in Brussels from Tuesday, 19 June until Thursday 21 June, primarily in the European Commission’s Charlemagne building and in the Committee of the Regions. Sessions start around 09.00 and finish around 18.30. Approximately 4 000 people from 50+ countries are expected to attend to take advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas with other players in the sustainable energy sector, meet EU staff and pursue business opportunities.

Also during EUSEW, almost 150 Energy Days will take place in the Belgian capital, as well as 900 across Europe. Aimed at the general public, these events promote energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in an engaging, accessible and interactive way. EUSEW participants can organise their schedule to include a wide range of activities in different locations across the city.
