5th HAEE Annual Symposium | Call For Papers

Conference Overview and Objectives

The HAEE - Hellenic Association for Energy Economics (Greek affiliate of the IAEE - The International Association for Energy Economics) - is organizing its 5th Annual Symposium that will take place at Divani Caravel Hotel,in Athens, Greece, between 13 and 15 May 2020, and will focus on challenging energy, economic and environmental issues. The Conference aims at providing an international forum for the exchange of ideas, research results, and experiences among experts and professionals engaged in academic, business, government, national and international organizations, working in all areas related to energy, environment and economy.

Europe has set ambitious targets to increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and raise the share of renewable energy. Nevertheless, the scenery of South-Eastern European region with multiple changing geopolitical and social conditions, poses serious questions, challenges and opportunities for countries, industries, professionals and academics. The Symposium will focus on these concerns on the one hand, but it will also provide a close overview of the raised opportunities in the energy sector.

We are pleased to announce that we anticipate to host more than 100 scientific paper presentations, and about 100 plenary speakers, where CEOs and Presidents of leading energy firms and Directors of key institutions – European and International – such as DG Energy, DG Environment and IFC, and policy makers and political leaders from Greece and abroad, will present and debate their views. As such, numerous projects and investment opportunities will be discussed, as well as the possibility of major international energy players to participate in the Greek energy markets.
