Testimonial

Pál Ságvári

I believe that the answer for Central Europe’s energy security issues is a complex one. Renewables, energy efficiency, smart solutions, nuclear energy, infrastructure, LNG, domestic resources and well-defined regulation are part of the equation. However, the suitable portfolio differs from one country to another. The art is to find the subtle balance of the well-known elements. Budapest Energy Summit as a fresh and bottom-up initiative will surely contribute to better express the region's specificities and create an even stronger link with international energy trends.

We all have a vision about a world we would like to live in and about a world that we would like to leave behind for our children, grandchildren and future generations. We visionize it, we talk about it, we expect political decision makers to take responsibilty for it, but at the end of the day who will finally shape this world we live in? There is no doubt that the energy sector has a huge role to play in this. This is why I find it so important that Budapest Energy Summit can provide a platform where the most influential players of this field can meet,brainstorm andshare ideas and insights about imporant issues like energy efficiency and renewalble energy. It is my great pleasure to be the host of the event.

Budapest, a beautiful city that bridges the east with the west. Where better to learn about the rapidly changing world of Energy and the impact on traded markets. Come and hear from the experts and challenge conventional wisdom by being first to hear new ideas and strategies that will secure our energy future. I’m happy to be one of the panel moderators.

One of the core activities of UNICEF is to process topics such as environmental awareness and sustainable development by focusing on UN's Sustainable Development Goals. These are integral parts of the work of UNICEF since they have effects on our everyday lives and also the future of our children that are solely depending on us! We believe that it is important to protect our planet and to constantly improve the renewable, green energy and its techniques because protecting our children also means to protect our environment in order to ensure secure future for them. It is therefore essential for us to take part in this event. Thank every participants very much for supporting UNICEF with a portion of their participation fees.
