About the Networking


What and Why?

The Networking Village is the perfect complement to the high-level Policy Conference.

Featuring SMEs and start-ups, industry and professional associations, networks of national, regional and local authorities, consumer associations, citizens’ groups, youth associations and many more, the Networking Village fosters deep social connections and information-sharing by bringing together key players in the field of sustainable energy.

It provides the opportunity for participants and stakeholders alike to exchange ideas on policies and best practices, and is a chance to lay foundations for future cooperation.


  • Visiting the Energy Fair – various sustainable energy networks and organisations hosting interactive stands;
  • Joining the audience of the Energy Lab – future project coordinators pitching their innovative ideas in front of an expert panel of judges;
  • Attending a variety of Energy Talks – engaging presentations on topics related to the clean energy transition. 

When and Where?

The Networking Village is hosted in the European Commission's Charlemagne building and the Residence Palace from 23 to 25 June 2020. 

In light of COVID-19, the scale and programme of the event might change.


All participants are welcome to discover the Networking Village and attend the various networking activities. Public and private organisations have a chance to submit their contributions to feature in the networking area. Contributors and presenters are selected by the European Commission, with an emphasis on interactive activities that encourage audience participation.
