Incorporating the 8th European Power Summit & 12th Nuclear Power Conference

Mark March 21-23 2017 in your diaries today!

We are very excited to announce the launch of Platts European Power Generation Week – a new initiative for the industry encompassing two must attend events taking place in the same week and location for the very first time.

Platts 8th annual European Power Summit (March 21-22) and 12th annual European Nuclear Power Conference (March 23) are bigger, better and more flexible than ever before, including significant delegate discount rates to attend both events.

This newly combined approach enables today’s leading energy companies, financiers, regulators and other key industry stakeholders to attend one or both events in Brussels this March.

Backed with an even higher speaker faculty and greater networking opportunities, these events will provide the perfect platform for the industry to debate the very latest developments, challenges and new business opportunities head on in both the renewables and conventional power generation sectors.

This will include the role of nuclear power in achieving a green future and the importance of digitization in successfully delivering a single EU market.

What to expect – a taster:
