The annual conference of the European Network of Transmission System Operators is organised this year under the patronage of the
Luxembourg Presidency of the European Council and in partnership with the
Florence School of Regulation, the Energy Community, and the
Renewable Grid Initiative. EC Vice-President
Šefčovič will open the Conference together with Tom
Eischen, Luxembourg Government Commissioner for Energy.
Just two days after Šefčovič's State of the Energy Union address, the ENTSO-E annual conference will be marked by the launch of ENTSO-E's Vision Package with recommendations on better regulation for energy, market design and innovation, security of supply, and energy regions. High level representatives of EU institutions, Member States and European electricity market participants will debate on how to take the energy union forward.
Moving the customer centre stage and preparing the power system of the future will be the underlining thread of the conference that will also give the floor to new stakeholders and market players such as
Global Director of Tesla Energy.
The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) promotes 100% integration of electricity produced from renewable energy sources. TSOs and NGOs join forces in RGI to support the build-up of a sufficient grid infrastructure in Europe for both decentralised and large-scale renewable energy sources.
RGI's 2nd annual 'Good practice of the year' award will be announced on 19 November during the pre-conference dinner.

The Florence School of Regulation (FSR), partner of the ENTSO-E Annual Conference, was founded in 2004 by three European regulators, and has as mission to expose the European dimension and to contribute to the safeguarding of the common goods by ensuring high-level and independent debate on economically and socially sound regulation. As a Conference partner, the FSR contributes to the programme setting and to panel moderation.
Energy Community is about investments, economic development, security of energy supply and social stability; but – more than this – the Energy Community is also about solidarity, mutual trust and peace. The very existence of the Energy Community, only ten years after the end of the Balkan conflict, is a success in itself, as it stands as the first common institutional project undertaken by the non-European Union countries of South East Europe.
