The energy intensive sector is of huge importance to the energy transition. Although the sector is slowly changing from being energy consumers to being energy prosumers and has shown steady progress in improving energy efficiency, there is still a lot of progress to be banked. 

Commercial and Industrial energy users currently consume 26% of Europe’s energy annually. With Europe targeting a 40% CO² emission cuts by 2030 and 60% by 2040, the importance of industrial and commercial energy is crucial at the moment.

To support this progress in the energy transition, European Utility Week will support the launch of the Commercial and Industrial Energy user Days (CIED). 

“The energy intensive sector plays a vital role in the energy transition which is driving energy generation, trading and consumption to new levels of interaction. With the Commercial and Industrial Energy user Days, we bring all sectors together to facilitate the discussion about the next step towards a new market design.” 

Patrick Bauduin, Conference Producer, Synergy Events - EMART Energy

“As a result of the current scale and relevance of the events we have seen the number of Commercial and Industrial attendees grow quite naturally. Now by really engaging with this sector, highlighting the relevant content and developing a bespoke marketing campaign focussed on this sector, EUW and the co-located events will facilitate a significant gathering for Commercial and industrial energy users as well as attracting more utilities to the mix.”

Paddy Young, Group Director, Synergy Events - European Utility Week

Co-located with European Utility Week are EMART Energy, Energy Revolution Europe and Intelligent Buildings Europe. With their own dedicated programmes and expos, each event coexists to facilitate and advocate the need to realise a fully integrated energy transition from energy trading, renewable generation, energy storage and integration into micro grids, as well as energy services and efficiency. 

With a growing interest from commercial and industrial energy users and prosumers regarding the co-located events and their conference programmes, which are paramount for businesses to save costs and reduce CO² emissions, the CIED Approved Programme will walk you through all the co-located events Programmes, providing a journey that will maximise the Commercial and Industrial energy users experience in Amsterdam: there will be a CIED approved 3 day conference programme highlighting topics of interest from across each of the co-located events with specific topics being highlighted for Commercial and Industrial energy users.
