Initiate! Programme

Initiate! Programme

Initiate! brings together all the players in the utility landscape to join forces in making sure that the energy transition will be completed. 

Programme Topics

A futuristic datatopia where young talents and startups come to meet with their peers, but also exchange knowledge with traditional experts is what Initiate! is all about. 

It is the place where the energy sector of the future is being forged, with the advice and guidance of today’s trends and knowledge.

This year, Initiate! is going to align itself with European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe and explore the innovative possibilities of the energy spectrum in its entirety.

From Generation to Customer Engagement, the future of the sector will “parade” at the Initiate! stage.


In accordance with the latest trends in Europe, Initiate! is going to re-introduce nuclear generation and the ways it can transform itself into a green solution for all Europeans.

Renewables and the decentralisation of the energy sector will be part of the mix, and so will trading among prosumers.

Students and young talents are going to venture an answer to the question “Who owns the data” and how to create a modern Datatopia in Europe to the benefit of the Digital Citizen. Finally, following the success of previous years, the Initiate! Challenges for students will once more be present at the Initiate! floor.


If you wish to be part of the busiest, most innovative and diverse hub on the exhibition floor and meet the young talents that are currently shaping the future of the energy sector, then Initiate! is the place for you.
