It is undeniable the fact that we are facing a new era in the global energy landscape. The ever-changing environment creates crucial issues, challenges and opportunities for countries, industries, practitioners and academics. In addition to global concerns, the conference will focus on the European energy sector, which is constantly confronted with uncertainty in the Southeast European region, which is a very sensitive area due to ever-changing geopolitical and social conditions.

3rd HAEE Annual Conference: Energy Transition: European and Global Perspectives

Which are the energy revolutions of the 21st century? Which are the geopolitics of energy? Can we predict the future of green transport? How can we save energy? Renewable energy will increase its share in the near future? Will the new "EU winter package" become a new successful energy policy for Europeans?

Answers to these and many other questions will be discussed during the academic and industrial debates of the Conference. The city of Athens is ideal for organizing this Conference as it is strategically positioned, allowing it to play an important role for renewable energy policies at this time. In addition, Athens combines unique ancient monuments, museums and landscapes in a modern and vibrant city on the Mediterranean coast with many social and cultural activities. Thus, the Conference will provide a unique opportunity to exchange academic knowledge, networking and enhance communication among all participants.
