This conference comes at an exciting time in the energy markets of Central and Eastern Europe, as the electricity and gas industries prepare themselves for full market liberalisation.

Energy companies currently face the challenge of delivering a secure and sustainable energy supply to meet increasing demand, whilst keeping prices competitive at a time of high costs. In addition to this, changing customer and regulatory requirements must be satisfied and the network must be restructured and modernised in order to compete effectively in domestic and European energy markets.

Now in its fourth year this conference continues to grow, consistently attracting high-level speakers and a broad range of senior delegates, numbering over 150 attendees last year.
