The “Macedonian Energy Forum 2020” is being organized for the third time, after its impressive previous editions in 2018 and 2019. The forum is being organized under the auspices of the prime minister of the Republic of North Macedonia Mr. Zoran Zaev, and organized by the Government of the Republic of North Macedonia, the Embassy of the US to Skopje and ZIP Institute.

This year, Macedonian Energy Forum is organized around the topics:
1. Energy transition through diversification of generation and supply sources, and
2. Challenges of regional energy integration in compliance with EU energy priorities and green deal 2050, global energy transition, new energy sources, energy efficiency and the challenges of the region of Southeast Europe toward the global trends.

Macedonian Energy Forum in 2018 started as an initiative whose aim was to encourage a regular formal dialogue on various energy related topics, contribute to clarifying the interests of energy investors in the region and offer alternative solutions in terms of geo-strategic energy positions.

In 2020, we move deeper into the regional challenge of energy integration in compliance with EU energy priorities and green deal 2050, the responsibility toward the environment, as well as the investments in energy transition through diversification of generation and supply sources.

We would like to mention that this year the forum due to the global pandemic caused by Covid19, is planned to be held in a so-called hybrid formation, with domestic speakers present at Ballroom 1, Skopje Marriott Hotel, where a studio, event directing service and stage are set (similar to other editions of the MEF) while foreign speakers and other participants will be able to participate and follow the forum online, all the registered participants through our webpage www.mef.mk will receive login instruction in order to join the official online platform of the forum.

We remain committed to the commitments put ahead last year that the organization of the Macedonian Energy Forum is in the spirit of the strategy of the Republic of North Macedonia to organize international events and conferences and to encourage dialogue as an essential part of the process of Europeanization of the society. We want to make sure that the outcomes of our forum in the form of conclusions, proposals and recommendations have been transferred to the public and to all relevant, competent and interested stakeholders in the field of energy.
