February 2022 Geopolitics

Adriatic team

Institute for strategic solutions is organizing a discussion event on current issues related to the green energy transition: presentation of views and discussion by key stakeholders on current economic issues in the implementation of the green energy transition.

The purpose of the event is to present a view of Slovenia’s energy challenges, especially in the field of green energy transition in the economy. The fact is that after the corona crisis the European economy is moving towards a green energy transition. Companies will have to adapt their business models to this, because regulations and at activities at all other levels are focused on assessing whether companies are energy fit for the future.

The event will be held in House of the EU in Ljubljana, on February 15, 2022 at 10 AM.
