III Energy Congress

Security, transformation, efficiency

The purpose of the III Energy Congress organized in Wroclaw in October 2017 is to present ideas and to enable a substantive discussion on the most important issues in the Polish and global energy sector. In our opinion, energy security is still of the utmost importance. During the Congress we will try to answer, among others, questions about the process of forming the Polish energy security doctrine and its content.

Contemporary energy markets are characterized by ever-changing dynamics. You can risk the assertion that they are in a permanent state of transformation. It is stimulated, on the one hand, by technological progress, on the other, by the progressive process of opening and integrating energy markets. A manifestation of the changes is, among others, the dynamic development of commodity exchanges of energy and gas. It is the latest trends in energy and fuel trading on the world markets that will be one of the main themes for this year’s Energy Congress.

The topic will also cover issues related to the implementation of efficiency-enhancing innovations in the broadly understood energy sector. We see a clear determination of the government and companies to pursue qualitative changes in many segments of the energy sector. The III Energy Congress will create good conditions for exchanging views and experiences in this regard.
