Launched in 2005, Sustainable Energy Week is a program put in place by the European Union to spread awareness on alternative energy issues throughout Europe. Though the week’s official dates are April 11 to 15, the weekends prior and after are also accepted for activities and events. EU member countries will participate by holding various events to promote sustainable energy in the 2011 edition of Sustainable Energy week.

The Sustainable Energy Week web portal features an interactive map that directs you to each member country’s Sustainable Energy Week events.
