The 5th SET Trebinje Energy Summit will be held this year from March 20 to 22 under the slogan “Energy Connectivity of the Western Balkans”, at the Trebinje Cultural Centre.

The summit is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of External Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Srpska government and the Republic of Srpska Ministry of Energy and Mining and the Ministry of Economy and Entrepreneurship. Elnos Group Banja Luka is the Summit’s main sponsor.

The increasing share of renewable sources in the production of electricity and at the same time their influence on the power system place increasing demands for the accelerated development of the system itself. At the same time, due to the increasing decentralized production of electricity in the immediate vicinity of the consumers or by consumers themselves, it becomes difficult for the suppliers to satisfy the ever-changing supply and demand. It is precisely in this connection that concepts and technical solutions such as energy storage, microgrids, demand adjustment and energy efficiency measures are increasingly coming to the fore.

During the three summit days, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss key questions regarding the energy future with almost 50 leaders from the power industry in the regional countries, who will participate in seven panel discussions. All relevant representatives of the energy sector in the region, executives from top domestic companies and institutions that shape the industry, business leaders and creators of energy policies, as well as top domestic and international energy experts will take part in the Summit.

“This year’s programme covers the topics of connection and cooperation of power companies in the region, management of power grids, electricity trading, gas market, management of electricity production facilities and management of own solar power plants. The most prestigious regional energy experts will speak about these topics, while several other extremely important topics related to the further development and just transition of the energy sector in the region will be discussed through presentations”, said the Summit’s organizers.

The Trebinje Energy Summit is an excellent opportunity for cooperation between public power companies, authorities and technology providers with the view of exchanging information and knowledge to understand the future of energy and see where the world is going in terms of sustainability.

During three days, the Summit will host over 1,000 participants from the region, which testifies to the great interest in the Summit shown by the energy stakeholders. Furthermore, a number of companies have also expressed their interest in participating in this year’s Summit, as this is an ideal opportunity to establish contact with potential business partners.
