An Ambitious Events Programme for 2018With the well attended colloquium on "Energy and Geopolitics" which IENE organised jointly with the Energy Policy and Development Centre (KEPA) of the University of Athens, last Thursday(25/1) in Athens, the Institute embarked in this year's events programme which appears far more ambitious than ever before

With the well attended colloquium on "Energy and Geopolitics" which IENE organised jointly with the Energy Policy and Development Centre (KEPA) of the University of Athens, last Thursday(25/1) in Athens, the Institute embarked in this year's events programme which appears far more ambitious than ever before. A whole series of conferences, workshops, seminars and evening lectures is planned over the coming months with events taking place in Brussels, London, Istanbul, Vienna, Nicosia, Thessaloniki and Athens. With the full listing of IENE's planned events shown in the events section of this site.

'The philosophy of the Institute' current events programme' says IENE' s Executive Director, Costis Stambolis, " is to inform on the region's very serious and highly challenging energy issues to a broader audience in European capital cities and of course closer at home. These issues focus on the several large infrastructure projects now developing across the region and SEE's strive towards achieving energy market integration within a fast changing global environment where new technologies and digitalization are having a profound effect on how energy markets operate. But also considerable attention is given on the great inconsistencies which are observed between stated EU energy sustainable targets and policies and actions pursued by various governments in the SE European region, which apparently have a different set of priorities related more to energy security, costs and social issues".

At the same time through its highly varied events programme, both in terms of content and location, the Institute aspires to inform on a number of very exciting new projects currently under development in the region. These include major infrastructure works such as the TANAP-TAP gas pipeline network now under construction, the IGB interconnecter, the FSRU terminal in Alexandroupolis, and other FSRU projects in Croatia and Turkey, the planned East Med gas pipeline, ongoing hydrocarbon exploration in Israel, Cyprus, Egypt and Greece, the new Energy Exchanges in Istanbul and Athens, Turkey's advancing nuclear power programme and its ambitious geothermal energy untilisation plan, and the rise of Renewables in several countries in the region. The above do not exhaust the range of issues which IENE is covering in its present round of conferences and meetings where attention is also given to subject areas such as energy storage, smart grids, ecomobility and Electric Vehicles, energy related investments and generated employment and long term energy planning.
