Media Partnership - GRIDTech 2022


Media Partnership - GRIDTech 2022


How do we establish a secure, affordable and sustainable energy system for Europe? How to keep delivering on climate and energy goals at the same time?

REPowerEU, Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Package, Methane Emissions Regulation... In these challenging times, it is essential to strengthen Europe's security of supply while progressing the energy transition.

Gathering a broad range of decision-makers and European energy stakeholders, the GRIDTech 2022 conference will be the occasion to assess the possible strategies and measures to support the key EU policy tasks. On the agenda: dynamic and interactive sessions with key policymakers, technical expert bodies and industry game-changers. The event will be followed by a networking reception at the Brussels venue.
