Saturday May 20th, 2017 marked the very successful completion of the 2nd International Conference of the Hellenic Association for Energy Economics think tank "THE LANDSCAPE IN THE NEW ERA OF ENERGY TRANSITION: Challenges, investment opportunities and technological innovations"  held at the Metropolitan Hotel in Athens.

2nd HAEE International Conference: The landscape in the new era of energy transition: Challenges, investment opportunities and technological innovations

The three day event surpassed every expectation as more than 250 experts from all over the world attended, representing more than 25 nationalities from Greece, United States of America, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, Japan, China, India, Canada, Chile among others. 

During the conference over 80 presentations from academics and analysts were presented which contain information needed by any investor, businessman and policy maker operating in the energy domain.

Furthermore over 50 top experts from the energy sector, business executives from private firms and government organisations, academics, policy makers and representatives from sectoral media, from Greece and abroad, analyzed the landscape and offered solutions for the development of the country’s energy potential, in over 10 round table plenary discussions.

With the conclusion of the conference, the HAEE executive board initiated the diffusion of conclusions and relative material through the International Association for Energy Economics network in other international and national conferences and their local energy executive circle of contacts all over the world. 

In this way the results and conclusions of the conference are at any given time at the disposal of the global energy community confirming HAEE as the most effective source of information for the international energy world about the developments in Greece.

Already a team of expert associates is working on systematically recording, sorting and prioritizing the positions and proposals set forth in the conference concerning Greece’s energy policy, the role of Greek government and private firms and the possible cooperation of domestic and foreign firms.

A second team will compare these results with the situation in Greek energy policy and corporate reality and will highlight the common interests and the possible joint ventures of Greek and foreign firms.

Their findings and recommendations will be shared with all the affiliates of the International Association for Energy Economics worldwide to foster possible cooperations in the Greek energy market, facilitating foreign investors in their strategic planning, in benefit of Greece’s economy.

Special care is given to the promotion of the conference’s economic and media supporters as they represent the most suitable Greek organisations for international cooperations, not only in the energy sector, but in the foreign investments' market as well.   

The Hellenic Association for Energy Economics is offering its members and corporate supporters the opportunity to attend the numerous international and national conferences of the IAEE affiliates in countries all over the world, and to network and get in touch with interested parties, as well as the possibility for organising on their behalf relevant energy events abroad.
