The energy industry in Europe is currently in the middle of a huge transitional period. Businesses are constantly having to develop or fine-tune new development strategies as they are forced to adjust to take into account many new factors that up to now have never really been an issue.

- The Commissions tough targets for sustainability
- The deliberate shift towards more sustainable energy sources
- The growing public anxiety on long term security of supply
- The new challenges and opportunities that are brought about by working in an enlarged Europe
- The big push towards liberalisation and a single European energy market

Delivering the required infrastructure is obviously an integral part of all this. The eventual aim of the EU community is to take the current patchwork of energy networks, and transform it into one single, integrated Trans-European network that is able to guarantee security of supply and sustainability. How the TEN-E grows and develops over the next few years is going to be crucial in moulding the future of the entire energy industry in Europe, and as such, it is essential for anybody involved in the energy distribution or supply sector in Europe to be aware of all the current issues relating to it.

This balanced and politically neutral conference will give you the full picture.

Who should attend?

This topic should be understood by all management levels, political and public affairs staff, legislators, NGOs and public interest groups both in Europe and beyond. The main sector beneficiaries would be anyone directly involved in the distribution or supply of energy in Europe, as well as anybody involved in research in the area and those involved in the planning or construction of energy infrastructure. This conference could also be useful for anybody wanting to find out how their business could benefit from superior energy links in Europe, or anyone looking to take advantage of the opportunities that having a single European energy market may bring.

What will I get from this?

This high level conference comprehensively covers the major issues relating to the future development of a secure and sustainable Trans-European Energy Network, and will leave the attendee with a thorough understanding of all the key thinking, debates and policies surrounding the subject.

The conference will open with keynote presentations from some of the top political representatives from Europe and beyond, who will be using this opportunity to outline some of their key guidelines and strategies relating to energy distribution in Europe and the future development of the network. Using a mixture of case studies, top level industry and association speakers, the presentation of research and panel discussions, we will go on to explore the major issues relating to funding of the network, enlargement, security of supply and sustainability.

You will have the chance to put questions to some of the major players in the European energy industry, and the event will also provide you with excellent networking potential. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
