EPCG and the Association of Power Engineers organise the first energy symposium in Montenegro on the topic “New Energy Trends”.

It is intended that the expert gathering of this scope and format becomes a tradition and a way of better positioning of both EPCG and Montenegro, as relevant addresses for starting and developing new ideas in the energy sector in the Southeast Europe.  

Our mission is to establish a significantly better connection among energy companies, educational and scientific institutions, in order to use the abundance of energy resources present in Montenegro and regional countries in the most optimal way and create conditions for a dynamic development, especially in the field of renewable energy sources (RES) as well as to find appropriate solutions for energy recession challenges which affect the world today. 

Symposium “EPCG NET 2022” will be held in Budva in Congress Hall of Avala Hotel on May 27 and 28, 2022, starting at 11 o'clock, and attended by around 200 participants, some of which are the most eminent people in the energy sector of the Southeast Europe.
