The Institute of Energy for SE Europe (IENE) is pleased to announce that it is going ahead with its plans to convene the "8th SE Europe Energy Dialogue” which will once again take place in Thessaloniki. The "8thSEEED” will be held on June 11 and 12, 2014 and will be hosted at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, in downtown Thessaloniki.

The purpose of this regional forum which is being organized by IENE, under the auspices of the Greek Presidency of the EU and with the support of leading international and regional organizations, is to bring together high-ranking government officials, senior business executives and energy experts from the countries of S.E. Europe but also from major energy producing countries with the objective of exchanging information and ideas, networking and developing co-operation for the tackling of the increased global and regional energy environmental challenges. The "Energy Dialogue” has been conceived as an open forum for furthering the idea of a S.E. European energy bridge involving all the countries of the region.

This year, the SE Europe Energy Dialogue meeting is highly topical in view of the ongoing debate between the EU and major energy suppliers with regard to security of energy supplies, Europe's high dependence on hydrocarbon imports and the global concern for the development of viable alternatives. The implications on market operation from the introduction and application of EU’s 3rd Energy Package will also provide the opportunity for a wide ranging  discussion. Furthermore, the Dialogue will concentrate on the latest developments of the region’s evolving natural gas and electricitymarkets focusing on S.E. Europe’s ever deepening energy partnerships with Russia, the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf, the East Mediterranean and North Africa.

In addition to the official representation from each one of the SE European countries and the participation of top management executives from most major energy companies of the region, senior executives from banks and financial institutions donor representatives as well as high ranking officials from major international organizations are expected to take part in this two day high powered regional meeting.

After seven years of uninterruptible success the SEEED is now considered the seminal regional energy event that has managed to engage not only the region’s top policy-makers, financiers and entrepreneurs but also secure high-level participation from some of the world’s leading energy and banking institutions, including the International Energy Agency (IEA), the European Commission, the Energy Community Secretariat, the Energy Charter, WEC, CGES, EUROPIA, Eurelectric, Eurogas, EFET, EPIA, COGEN, EBRD, EIB and the World Bank.The forum’s delegates and speakers over the last seven years have also included senior executives from well known international corporations such as BP, Shell, Gazpromexport,Statoil, EDF, GDF Suez, ENEL, RWE, EON, Endesa, PPC, Serbgas, Plinacro, Transelectrica, KESH, AERS, RAE, Bulgarian Energy Holding, CEZ, Edison, DEPA, DESFA, Energean Oil and Gas, Hellenic Petroleum and many others.

A detailed announcement concerning the 8th SEEED, its agenda and programme will soon follow.
