The international investment conference Energy Week Black Sea will take place, on the 28-30th of September 2021, in a hybrid format: online and offline in Bucharest (Romania).
The largest renewables conference in the region for the second year will bring together government authorities, local companies from Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey, and foreign private investors to discuss RES policies for the energy transition, financing renewable energy, solar & storage, on & offshore wind, green hydrogen, regional interconnection and much more.
Investing in renewable energy in the Black Sea region is gaining momentum. Although the countries surrounding the Black Sea may differ in terms of politics and economic background, they are all very keen on increasing the share of RES.
The Energy Week Black Sea was launched in 2020, during tumultuous times for any industry event, and nevertheless brought together the major energy companies from 20+ countries such as: NBT, Scatec Solar, Grupo Cobra, Tractebel Engineering, Siemens Gamesa, Global Hydro, AGL, FMO, EBRD, IFC, KfW, DEG (KfW), Green For Growth Fund, Goldwind, IRENA, Mott MacDonald, Asian Development Bank, Black Sea Trade and Development Bank, EDF, Eksim Investment Holding, Enel, CE Oltenia, ROMGAZ, Electrica, Georgian Energy Development Fund, TRYBA ENERGY, EDPR Romania, Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC), State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine, National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (Ukraine), Republic of Turkey Energy Market Regulatory Authority, Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate, Electricity System Operator of Bulgaria and many others.
In 2021, the organisers will go back to offline events and invite all the interested companies to join the EWBS filled with networking opportunities. For international participants unable to travel this year the live footage will be streamed online to view and participate in any Q&A.
During the 2-day conference, participants will discuss reforms implemented by each country to foster or further scale up renewable energy deployment, how individual countries attract investors in global competition, suitable support schemes and policy reversals in some countries, as well as will address intermittency and energy security issues.
