Fourth conference: Consultation Forum for Sustainable Energy in the Defence and Security Sector

  • 16 May 2017 to 18 May 2017
  • 06:00 - 12:00

The Consultation Forum for Sustainable Energy in the Defence and Security Sector (CF SEDSS) is a European Commission funded and EDA managed initiative to engage Ministries of Defence and Armed Forces in addressing energy efficiency and renewable energy issues on defence estates, including military infrastructure and land.  With well in excess of 100 members, the CF SEDSS initiated European Defence Energy Network (EDEN) has maintained a good level of participation in the three conferences held during 2016 – in January in Brussels, in June in Dublin, and in November in Rome. 

The EDA is now inviting Member States to register for the fourth CF SEDSS conference taking place in Lisbon from 16 to 18 May 2017.

By this fourth event, the Consultation Forum will have reached a key milestone in this 24 month project and participants’ views will now be sought both in and outside of the conferences. Building on the progress made during the previous conferences, Member States expert delegates will be involved in a number of plenary sessions on cross-cutting considerations. Delegates will also continue to work interactively in three parallel focused working groups covering: (1) Energy Management, (2) Energy Efficiency, and (3) Renewable Energy.
