The Balkan Clean Energy Transition Conference is a three-day event (19 – 21 September) covering Clean Energy topics such as renewables, energy efficiency, smart cities, circular economy, mobility, governance and citizen engagement, all of them leading the Balkan area throughout the coal transition.

In parallel with the Conference, the Balkan Clean Energy Transition Fair is a four-day exhibition (19-22 September) showcasing new technological solutions that will make Balkans cleaner and greener.
