Montel welcomes you to the French Energy Day 2018, where expert speakers will bring you up to date on the latest energy market trends in France and its neighboring countries.    


This year Montel is hosting its second conference in Paris since 2017. Last year we called it a Market Insights seminar, but based upon the tremendous amount of guests and the overall feedback on both content and last year's speakers, we have decided to expand the event to a typical Montel Energy Day.      


The conference also marks Montel News' presence in the French market over the last few years. We will continue to cover market and energy sector developments, as well as the key political and regulatory issues.     


The event will be presented in French with simultaneous translation into English.
