Ready for EUSEW 2017?

EUSEW 2017 kicks off next week. Here is how to collect your conference badge, register at the last minute and use the matchmaking app to make the most of your time there.

This year’s EU Sustainable Energy Week policy conference programme includes more activities than ever. Follow these tips to maximise your time on policy debate, new projects and your sustainable energy network. We are looking forward to seeing you in Brussels on 20 June.

Collecting your conference badge

If you have already registered online for the policy conference (registrations closed at midnight on 14 June), you will soon receive an email with your personal bar code for the conference. To collect your badge, print out the email and present it at the registration desk at either the Charlemagne building or the Residence Palace when you arrive.

On 20 June, the Charlemagne desk is open from 8:30 to 17:30 and the Residence Palace desk from 17:00 to 18:30. On 21 and 22 June, both desks are open from 8:00 to 19:30.

It will be a busy three days. To secure a place in your chosen first session, please arrive at the venue to register 30 minutes before it begins. For a reminder of your selected sessions, log on to the EUSEW website and click on "My Programme".

On-the-day registration

If you haven’t registered online, don’t panic! You can still register for the conference on the day.

Take your passport or ID card with you to the registration desk in either the Charlemagne building or the Residence Palace (see opening times above) and complete a registration form. This is likely to take a little longer than badge collection, which will have a separate queue, so organise your schedule to accommodate the slight delay.  

Match-ups and networking

EUSEW 2017 is a great opportunity to strengthen old alliances and make new contacts. Sign up to the EUSEW matchmaking app to find out who you should meet.

This is a simple way to discover who shares your sustainable energy interests, organise one-to-one meetings, message and network. It also gives you the latest programme updates, your customised agenda and maps to guide you round the event.

More information

The EUSEW policy conference brings together European Commission, local government, industry and consumer leaders to debate innovative policies and share projects for energy efficiency and renewables. This year’s theme is Clean Energy for all Europeans. Participants can choose from over 60 policy sessions and dozens of networking activities, along with the official ceremony for the EU Sustainable Energy Awards.

There is also still time to create your own Energy Day any time in June and register it on the Energy Days map. Guidelines, promotional material and support are all available from EUSEW.
