Stay competitive!

The energy supply market is changing rapidly

Visit 6th Energy Symposium • 8 + 9 October 2019 • Graz, Austria


Decision makers in the energy sector are confronted with massive political and social demands such as the EU's Clean Energy for All Europeans Package with its Renewable Energy Directive which is one of the world's most ambitious policies. Energy suppliers, public utilities and network operators have to evolve from electricity and gas suppliers to multi-service providers. This requires innovative strength in order to develop novel business models and therefore to offer new services and products which allow competitiveness. Energy Symposium gives an overview over the opportunities and threads these changes bring for the energy supply market and provides deep insights into what actions energy suppliers, public utilities and network operators can take to realise an energy supply eco system.


Energy Symposium is an industry meeting for the energy sector with a European perspective. It brings together users and suppliers. Innovative small and medium sized enterprises as well as globally operating corporates are presenting their technologies and new business concepts related to the integration of all concerning energy sectors at city, district and building level. 

Moreover, cities, local communities and housing associations are attending Energy Symposium to get information about decentralised implementation of energy solutions. Find out how to utilise the changes in the energy supply market to find new cooperation and distribution opportunities.



Energy Symposium is your powerful information platform for exchanging best practices concerning the implementation of energy supply concepts. Energie Graz is sharing valuable insights about projects and strategies of the City of Graz. Learn about best practices from Fronius International who share their experiences on the decentralised production and local utilisation of green hydrogen. Siemens explains precisely how power grids can be an enabler for citizen energy communities and Technische Universität Kaiserslautern presents sector coupling as a flexibility provider in the cellular approach.



Exchange ideas in the workshop about regional energy supply concepts of the future or in the workshop about hydrogen technologies for decentralised energy storage and supply and get to know the development platform which is dedicated to hydrogen storage. The innovation network is currently being set up on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. It's a chance for energy suppliers, public utitlities and network operators to develop innovative concepts for their competitiveness.


experience smart city graz

Graz (Austria) has many years of experience in the implementation of smart and sustainable urban development projects on a European level. It is home of world’s No 1 Green Tech Cluster with more than 200 companies and research institutes, who contribute their technologies to the implementation of the innovative Smart City Graz. That makes Graz the perfect location for this event. You'll visit the innovative Science Tower which is one of the few energy plus skyscrapers in Europe and experience the realisation of the smart city at first hand.

Why Energy Symposium focuses on

integrated Energy Systems in Urban Areas

To maintain the climate of our planet in the long term we must change our energy generation from fossil to renewable sources. An efficient use of this renewable energy can only be realised by the integration of the individual electricity, heat and mobility sectors.


Dominating the global energy demand and relying on their density of economic, human and intellectual capital cities and urban areas will play a key role in the successful realisation of a sustainable energy transition. This transition will completely change the energy market of the past, disrupting common business models and providing at the same time exciting new opportunities.


Innovative technologies and new business concepts related to the integration of the individual energy sectors at city, district and building level are the focus of the 6th Energy Symposium, which provides a platform for cross-sectoral exchange between technology providers, users and authorities.
