Energy plays a crucial role, today more than ever, following geopolitical turmoils, supply disruptions that led to record-high energy prices and climate change induced-events that put a strain on energy companies worldwide. Energy leaders, therefore, face unprecedented challenges and how they react to them, will determine not only the future of their companies and organisations but of entire nations.

That’s why, at CEENERGYNEWS, we have decided to give recognition to the efforts of inspiring individuals from the energy industry, whether they are leading a business, driving its growth and its people, or sharing their expertise through different channels (i.e. think tanks, publications, associations, alliances etc). We have also decided to give special recognition to the future generation of energy leaders, under 35 years old: through today’s contributions, they are creating a better world for tomorrow, based on a stronger and more resilient energy industry.

Until 21 June 2023, you can help us identify the most influential energy leaders of Central and Eastern Europe, by nominating and filling out a brief form. Once the candidates are finalised, the voting period will be open until 30 October 2023.

Finally, join us in giving recognition to these inspiring people at an in-person awards ceremony in Budapest, Hungary, on 4 December 2023.
