Energy Transition Dialogue in Luxembourg

Be actor of the decarbonisation and electrification strategy

The energy transition is well under way. The digital transformation, new mobility approaches, new ideas for living in cities and the rising number of prosumers are examples of the ongoing energy transition. This national dialogue event aims to bring all involved stakeholders and actors in the whole energy supply chain of Luxembourg to provide an overview of the energy landscape in Luxembourg and the challenges faced during the emerging sustainable transition towards electrification and decarbonisation. This will be a meeting place to update and share expert knowledge, and  an occasion to become part of innovation development in smart and low-carbon energy technologies to address energy transition challenges.

Especially, involvement of policy-makers, regulators and business developers besides the electricity producers and distributors allows this event to become one of the most effective platforms to accelerate the energy transition in Luxembourg.


This event aims to inspire and stimulate collaboration among the private and public sectors, institutional entities and academia to address the challenges ahead and to participate as an actor to make the energy transition happen. Topics to be discussed in the conference include, but are not limited to, renewable and electric vehicles integration, demand-side flexibility, digital transformation, new business models, and user acceptance.
