The Energy Day is the annual conference of the German Member Committee of the World Energy Council on national and international energy issues.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are all aware of the change and transformation: Towards a new, digital and sustainable energy world. While feeling this trend, it is still difficult to evaluate the implications for the energy sector. Which innovations will win through and what kind of policies could support this transformation in a reasonable manner? At the same time it is important to follow the trends in other countries.

10 days before the official beginning of the “World Energy Congress” in Istanbul we want to take a closer look on Turkey: Is it still achievable for Turkey to reach its goal to become a major energy hub between Russia, the Middle East and Europe? Where do experts from the private sector, from politics and academia see room for more cooperation? Is Turkey also moving towards a new energy future? We look forward to the discussions with you and our experts from all over the world at our Energy Day 2016 in Berlin on 29 September.
