News archive - Get ready for the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2011

Between April 11 and 15, 2011 hundreds of events organised in all parts of Europe will show, promote, discuss and celebrate energy efficiency and renewable energy – and you can be a part of it. It’s time to get into the starting block for next year’s EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), Europe’s key event for a more sustainable energy future.

What is an Energy Day?

Energy days can be any event or happening to promote energy efficiency or renewable energy – from exhibitions, conferences, online events, performances to guided tours, open door days, workshops, media campaigns, concerts and much more…
In line with the EUSEW 2011 main theme, events addressing energy efficiency matters are particularly welcome but also events addressing renewable energy qualify to be an Energy Day.

Who can take part?

If energy efficiency and renewable energy matter to you, then you are a potential Energy Day organiser, whether you are:
• A local or regional authority.
• A company, business organisation or chamber of commerce, university.
• A consumer association, citizen group or NGO, a university or research, think tank.

  • Bosnia and Hercegovina (Tuzla)
