OVERVIEW - Become Part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014!

The 9th edition of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014 (EUSEW 2014) will take place in June. Launched in 2006 as a European Commission initiative, EUSEW has become Europe’s leading event on sustainable energy. It brings together energy stakeholders and the general public and provides a prominent platform to showcase successful projects, innovative technologies and best practices.


EUSEW welcomes public authorities, energy agencies, big businesses, SMEs, NGOs, industry associations and academic institutions working towards the EU’s energy and climate goals. Do you wish to share your expertise, raise awareness or showcase your successful technology? Then we invite you to become part of EUSEW 2014!

EUSEW and the building sector

The building sector plays a key role in achieving the European Union targets on energy efficiency and the increased use of renewable sources of energy. EUSEW 2014 will again address policy, technology and successful examples of how innovation in buildings contributes to achieving these targets.


Sustainable Energy Europe Awards – it’s your turn!

A highlight of EUSEW is the Sustainable Energy Europe Awards ceremony. With the LIVING category, the Awards competition rewards best-in-class practices in the building sector. The 2013 winners and nominees represent a range of outstanding examples of energy efficient construction and renovation and nearly-zero energy buildings from across Europe:

The 2014 winners will be announced during EUSEW in a session hosted by Commissioner for Energy Günther H. Oettinger. Does your project also deserve a nomination? We invite you to submit your project before 28 March 2014 on the EUSEW website.


Energy Days

Every year, hundreds of organisations become part of EUSEW with their own Energy Day. Energy Days are not-for-profit events and activities that promote energy efficiency or renewable energy. Activities such as exhibitions, conferences, online events, performances, guided tours, open door days, workshops, media campaigns and concerts are all eligible. Are you keen in promoting your achievements in making buildings more sustainable to citizens, potential investors or policy makers? Would you like to showcase your projects, products or installations? EUSEW invites you to register your Energy Day. Energy Days can take place during the whole month of June 2014.

In 2013, numerous Energy Days focused on the building sector, including the following:


High Level Policy Conference

The core of EUSEW 2014 will be the High Level Policy Conference (HLPC) on 24-26 June 2014 in the European Commission’s Charlemagne building in Brussels. The conference will stage 18 events hosted by the European Commission and other stakeholders. The 2013 edition of the HLPC featured five events dedicated entirely to the building sector:

The programme of the High Level Policy Conference 2014 will be available in April.
