Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP), in cooperation with the DG Energy of the European Commission, organizes the fifth edition of the Central European Day of Energy (CEDE). This year the conference will take place on 2 December as a digital event in light of the situation with COVID-19.
The 2020 edition of CEDE will focus on offshore wind development in Central Europe, particularly in the Baltic, Black and Adriatic seas. Wind energy has become a major driver for RES deployment in Europe and around the world, even if still more costly than onshore, and seems fundamental to reaching Europe’s climate and energy targets in an effective way.
As a partner organization, the Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO) contributed to the preparation of the event as it seeks to promote the Central European Day of Energy in Croatia and in its neighboring countries. During the event an analysis of offshore wind energy developments in Central and Eastern Europe will be presented,prepared by partner organizations of CEDE including IRMO.
CEDE aims to consolidate a regional energy platform that reflects the region’s perspective on the development of the European energy policy and highlights the accomplishments and challenges faced by regional stakeholders in the implementation process.
The conference brings together stakeholders from the European institutions, national administrations, energy and energy-intensive companies, academics, energy experts and themedia, in order to provide an exchange forum between participants and to consolidate a regional energy platform.
