OPEN DIALOGUES IS KEY TO THE STABILITY AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE ENERGY SECTOR
Decci appreciated the open dialogue led by the participants not only about the current situation, but also about the future development of the renewable energy sector and the role of solar energy in the energy mix of the Czech Republic. Regular meetings and open dialogues among state, banking, science and business representatives are key to the stability and development of the energy sector, as well as establishing the right energy mix.
We would like to thank all conference participants for their attendance and valuable contributions. We believe that next year’s conference will build on this one’s success!
