Bridging the east-west-divide


The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) hosts its second of three regional conferences in 2016 on 23 September in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. The “Central East European Regional Conference” is devoted to the opportunities of an extended regional and supra-regional cooperation for the European electricity market from the perspective of Central Eastern Europe. The status, the progress and the perspectives of the power market integration between Central Eastern and Central Europe – 27 years after the end of the cold war – are the primary topics of the event.

Among ENTSO-E’s partners in the organisation of the event are the Slovakian Ministry of Economy, the Florence School of Regulation and several transmission system operators (TSOs) including eight TSC members: 50Hertz, one of the four German TSOs, the Austrian operator APG, the Czech TSO ČEPS, ELES from Slovenia, the Croatian TSO HOPS, the Hungarian Company MAVIR, PSE from Poland, and the Dutch-German TSO TenneT.

Numerous high-profile representatives from European and national politics, authorities, companies and associations contribute as speakers to the conference. Naturally, top executives from all the participating TSC members are to be found on the prestigious speaker’s list. Siem Bruijns, Managing Director of TSCNET Services, is also to make a contribution to the conference.
