Smart Energy

Few economic sectors are as important as the energy industry. Forward-looking policy-makers place this industry on top of the agenda. Investments in sustainable technology are given priority. Scientific research is stimulated. The red carpet is rolled out for Smart Energy conferences where knowledge can be shared.

Nice to know


The world’s first large-scale wind energy park was built in Flanders.


Flanders has the third highest number of solar panels per capita.


Our region is world leader in fostering a biobased economy.


The energy storage solutions of the future are developed in Flanders.

Sustainable energy has already been a policy priority for many decades in Flanders.

In “living labs” new ideas are developed and – equally crucial – existing technologies are combined. World-class partners contribute to the success of your conference. Discover conference venues that are unique in the world: architectural heritage equipped with the latest technology.
