Newsweek Romania is organising a new edition of the Energy Summit, on 18 October, 4pm. The event brings together industry experts to discuss the electricity and gas supplies needed for the winter of 2023-2024, as well as Romania’s strategy for the EU’s proposed new targets on renewable energy and carbon reduction.
One of the biggest concerns about energy production and use is its environmental impact.
We will discuss the policies needed for the transition to renewable and sustainable energy sources and the plans that public authorities have for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change.
Climate change and energy efficiency policies have already put their mark on the need to invest in the development of new production and distribution capacity that complies with new European directives.
Discussions at the event will focus on the advantages and disadvantages of each source, as well as technological advances in their development and use: the role of nuclear, solar, wind, hydro and other energy sources in the global energy mix.
Energy is an essential resource for mankind that can help make our lives easier, power our modern world and provide us with unlimited opportunities for development.
But we are all responsible for how we use it and how we choose to exploit it for future generations.
There will be a limit of 20 seats for the public. To participate in the hall please register by emailing email@example.com and you will be confirmed by a message from the organiser.
The event will be broadcast live on newsweek.ro (Top 10 most read News and Analysis website in the SATI ranking, with a traffic of over 2.2 million unique readers per month) and on Newsweek Romania’s Facebook page (67,000 followers and a monthly impact of 7.5 million posts).
