Initiate! Young Talent Programme

Presenting your vision for tomorrow to the energy leaders of today


The Initiate! Young Talent Programme welcomes students and young professionals about to graduate and ready to work in the industry or under 35 and working for a utility - join us!

The industry needs new talent and new ideas to encourage the development of solutions and strategies to bring about change.

You will network with your peers, share your knowledge and work with other utility professionals to put your ideas into practice. By joining the programme you have access to the  PGE/ EUW Summit programme where you will additionally be able to schmooze with the policymakers, thought leaders and utility giants.

We will grant 200 FREE tickets for POWERGEN Europe / European Utility Week 2019 to students with the ambition to make an impact and innovate the industry. We just ask you to be pro-active, motivated and engaged!



A maximum number of passes per university applies – check out the University Partnerships section below for more information
