European Utility Week

Join us in Paris

· News

12-14 November, Paris

The European Utility Week is a platform for achieving a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe. It hosts the environment for all key players in the smart energy ecosystem to come together and discuss European strategy to achieve a smooth transition towards a low carbon energy supply.

The 3-day programme will see an energy trilemma of security, equity and sustainability across an end-to-end European energy experience.

As we’re facing climate change, we must
understand that the energy transition is crucial to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In Paris, we set a carbon neutrality goal by 2050, reducing our energy consumption by half and converting to renewable energies. To
do so, we are collaborating closely with energy stakeholders."

Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris
