EUKI Conference 2022

Fostering the Green Transition

20 - 21 September 2022

On-site in Berlin & Online


How can we strive for climate neutrality in times of crisis? The Kremlin's war in Ukraine, Russia's current aggressions, and the varying dependencies on its fossil fuels amongst European countries have led to massive energy shortages throughout the continent. This has triggered a shift in Europe’s public narrative: the transition to renewable energy systems is no longer a “(how) should we do it?” matter, but rather a “how fast can we do it?” one.

Across the continent, the urgency of transforming our economies, cities, and ways of life towards a cleaner and greener future is picking up speed. How can we make use of this dynamic? Which energy sources and technologies help secure energy independence in the short run, while boosting climate action in the long run? Which solutions do EUKI projects already provide, and what more is needed for a climate-neutral future?

The EUKI Conference 2022 will provide an on-site and online space for more than 250 EUKI project members, representatives from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), and the EU Commission to ponder on these questions. Join us for two days full of dialogue and collaboration – to foster the green transition in Europe!

Register here for the on-site or online part if you are or used to be part of an EUKI project - or join us on 20 September via our public live stream on Youtube.



Once you have successfully registered for the conference, all updates will be sent to you via e-mail.



How can we transform Europe into a climate-neutral continent? The EUKI Networking Conference 2021 offers plenty of interactive workshops, networking opportunities and keynote sessions in which the participants can explore this question.  

Many inspiring speakers will be attending EUKICON21 to present their approaches, practical solutions and their innovative ideas for the European path towards net-zero.

Please note that the participation in this event is possible with prior registration only. You will receive a confirmation of the registration via email.

EUKI is turning five years old! Fife years are roughly the lifespan of a healthy guinea pig or the distance between two European elections. Not too much. Still, when looking back at the achievements in the last 5 years and the growth of EUKI – in funding volume, project number, team size, country setting, community network and impact for European climate action – we have all the reasons to celebrate together!

Whether you are familiar with the EUKI conference or are attending this unique event for the first time – we are looking forward to connecting you with climate leaders from more than 31 countries, 157 projects and 308 organisations.
