SED 2019 is the first and only gathering of such complexity in Croatia, whose content is created “by experts – for the experts”. Particular attention of SED 2019 was devoted to energy democracy in the broadest sense of the term, especially considering that Croatia is still in energy transition which significantly increases the number of active energy trading stakeholders.
