Central European Energy Conference 2020

The purpose of the annual CEEC conference is to assess and discuss topical issues relating to energy and climate policy in Central Europe in an EU policy development context. The CEEC conference has two ambitions: first, to bring together leading stakeholders from Central Europe’s energy sector, and second, to help find better energy and climate policy solutions for the EU and for Central Europe. The first annual CEEC conference was held in November 2007. The 10th and 11th CEEC conferences were held in tandem with the SET Plan conference as part of the official programme of the Slovak and Estonian Presidencies of the EU Council, in the second half of 2016 and 2017. The 12th conference in 2018 was held in conjunction with the V4 energy ministers summit during Slovakia’s V4 Presidency. The 13th conference formed part of the official programme of the 2019 Slovak OSCE Presidency.

The 14th CEEC conference in 2020 is a special conference for a number of reasons. Above all, it is being held in the midst of an unprecedented economic crisis triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic at the same time as the EU is making great efforts to implement its ambitious European Green Deal. The EU’s Recovery Plan for Europe is being targeted at the economic crisis in member states and at supporting their economies via a special assistance mechanism that includes the Next Generation EU fund. The fund could provide additional assistance to member states over and above the existing EU budget for investments in the economic recovery in line with the European Green Deal targets. The main aim of the 14th CEEC conference is to discuss the priorities of the Slovak Recovery Plan in relation to the utilisation of these funds, and to compare them with the priorities of the other V4 countries. The conference will explore key energy transition themes that are also important for re-starting the V4 economies and fulfilling the aims of the European Green Deal.
