About the Networking

What and Why?

The Networking Village fosters information-sharing and new connections to promote sustainable energy innovation. It provides the opportunity for participants and stakeholders alike to exchange ideas on policies and best practices, and a chance to lay foundations for future cooperation. The Networking Village is the perfect complement to the high-level Policy Conference.
