I was asked to be a speaker to the second and third edition of the Romanian Wind Energy Forum – the most successful forum of the wind industry in Romania – organized by the Romanian Wind Energy Association with the support of the European Wind Energy Association (now WindEurope).

In an attempt to establish a creative dialogue between the business environment and state officials, the event brought together the most relevant actors to debate the current and future integration of wind energy in a two-day conference. More than 200 professionals from across Europe attended the event.

At the second edition I was part of the panel of experts discussing the new energy market configuration: PPAs, the Intraday Market and the Guarantee Fund.

At the third edition I was part of the panel of legal experts discussing the recent amendments to the renewable energy legislation.

 

Modul în care candidatul exemplifică principiul exprimat în următoarea linie a Crezului JCI: „Lucrul în folosul umanităţii este cea mai nobilă formă de a munci.”

At the Energy Law Summer School – First Edition – July 2014 I co-designed and delivered a presentation entitled ”Shale gas – judicial, technical, political aspects” to an audience of 17 students from ten countries and organized a negotiation exercise where the participants had the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained during the presentation. The Energy Law Summer School focused on complex and modern issues regarding energy law, aiming at enhancing students knowledge in a more applied manner and also rise awareness upon a practice area of great importance. The project involved many activities, courses and training seminars and workshops ranging from academic debate to question sessions, all conducted in a professional academic environment.

In July 2017 I will give a presentation on leadership, an event organized together with the Bucharest Youth Association.
