Event Description

Central European Energy Partners would like to invite you for the 5th Central European Day of Energy (CEDE) on 2 December from 10.00 to 13.00.

But what’s really happening with offshore wind in Central Europe ? Our speakers will tell you about the latest developments in renewable policies as well as about some ground-breaking projects.
