Why you should come?

This year, one of Hungary's leading investment-focused energy conferences will focus on the upcoming fundamental changes to domestic gas and electricity supply, partly due to changes in global relations, and on the key challenges the energy industry faces as a result. As it has become a tradition at Portfolio's trade conferences, the most important events and trends in the industry, as well as the impact of these, will be presented and explained to participants by prominent professionals from the fields in question.

Among other things, our audience will receive detailed information on Hungary's changes in gas supply import routes and the effect of these on prices and the gas sector as a whole; on changes arising from the updated National Energy Strategy and other regulatory news; on the new, more mature phase of the domestic subsidy system for solar energy; on what factors could influence, and how, energy prices in Hungary in 2020; on the anticipated cost of fossil energy generation and use as carbon-dioxide emission is becoming more expensive; on the increasingly pressing challenges of Hungary's electricity supply with regard to power plant and grid development; and on the latest developments in the EU's energy policy and the creation of a unified European energy market.
