Due to the current geo-political situation and the timing of the C4E Forum 2023, taking place after a winter with high energy prices across Europe, the main topics that will be addressed at the event are energy security, the rebuilding of Ukraine and EU policy (REPowerEU and Fit-for-55 package).
The above key topics will be discussed at the high-level plenaries but also in the panel sessions from a more practical perspective (see general programme structure).
Parallel panel sessions are where most of the “magic” happens and they are among the most popular part of the programme. One of the many things that make C4E Forum special is the close interaction between participants. Both mornings on Wednesday and Thursday will be dedicated to panel sessions in which participants will have the opportunity to share their experience, discuss and look for inspiration for their work.
We insist strongly on short presentations (12 min; 3 presentations per session) and reserving at least half of the 90 min session for engagement with the audience and break-out discussions moderated by an experienced Panel Leader (who will also support the preparation of the session together with the Presenters by providing comments to their presentations, etc.).
Anyone is eligible to apply and give a presentation at the C4E Forum on topics that are interesting and relevant to various aspects of energy efficiency in Central and Eastern Europe. Presenters are asked to submit an application indicating their chosen topic and outline of their presentation (see a list of suggested topics in the form below).
All presenters have to register as participants. The registration fee structure is outlined here.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of topics that we believe are interesting to the C4E Forum community. However, if you would like to present on a specific topic that you consider relevant but it is not on the list, please add this topic in your application form.
1. Energy security
