The EU Sustainable Energy Week is the reference event for sustainable issues in Europe. It forms part of the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign which is an initiative of the European Commission launched in 2005.
The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign contributes to achieving the European Union's energy policy targets within the fields of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, clean transport and alternative fuels.
In 2009, the EUSEW combined 149 events in and outside Brussels with over 30,000 participants. EUSEW is organised by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) on behalf of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport.
This year, the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will take place from 22 to 26 March. As a Campaign Associate, the EIB will take part in events, activities and networking opportunities set up in Brussels. The week's focus will be renewable energy, energy efficiency, clean transport and alternative fuels. EIB staff will speak and participate in a number of events including the Sustainable Energy Week Awards Ceremony.
