A Busy Autumn Schedule for IENE

A Busy Autumn Schedule for IENEWith forthcoming events in London, Bucharest, Athens and Nicosia and a cramped research and studies programme it seems that IENE has its plate full. But this is not all since in addition to its events and research work the Institute has to take care of the news and analysis updates it regularly sends to its members.

With forthcoming events in London, Bucharest, Athens and Nicosia and a cramped research and studies programme it seems that IENE has its plate full. But this is not all since in addition to its events and research work the Institute has to take care of the news and analysis updates it regularly sends to its members. These updates which take the form of newsletters such as the Energy Weekly Review, the Weekly SEE Electricity Market Analysis, the SEE Energy Brief and the occasional Briefing and Research Notes are prepared by dedicated and talented teams of in house staff and external associates.

The first major event of the autumn season is the one day conference on "East Mediterranean Gas" to be held in London on October 7 which is primary organised by UK' s Energy Institute (EI) in partnership with and the strong backing of IENE. The whole debate on what is the real gas potential of the East Med region and whether one day it could supply some of Europe's energy needs is moving to London thanks to EI's interest to host this unique event.A select group of speakers and panelists has been assembled with strong interest already expressed by international companies and energy professionals from several countries to attend and contribute to this ground breaking event. The official title of the event is " East Mediterranean : The New Natural Gas Frontier" and details can be found in https://www.energyinst.org/whats-on/search/events-and-training?meta_eventId=61910c.

Next in line is an important regional gathering in Bucharest on October 16. This event which will examine the "Energy Transition and Investment Challenges in SE Europe" is organised by the Romanian Energy Centre (ROEC) in association with IENE and will take place at the EU offices in downtown Bucharest. The emphasis here is on regional investment opportunities as it is anticipated that SEE will soon enter a steep decarbonisation cycle. In addition to renewables the range of issues to be examined include natural gas, especially as Romania is expanding local gas production with export potential in the offing, energy efficiency in the housing, public building and industrial sector and digitalisation challenges in the broad energy sector.

IENE's major annual conference on " Energy & Development" is scheduled for November 21/22 in Athens with more than 50 speakers and panelists from Greece and abroad planning to participate. More than 30 speakers have already confirmed their attendance in what looks likely to evolve as one of the most successful events ever staged by the Institute. Among the highlights of this year’s conference will be the presentation of IEA's 2019 World Energy Outlook and of the South Corridor, which is slated to come on stream in the first quarter of 2020. Experts from Azerbaijan, Turkey, Greece, Albania and from the TAP operating company have been invited to participate. This year's special conference theme focuses on 'Energy's Pivotal Role in Economic Growth" and further information may be found at https://www.iene.eu/el/congress/19/energy-and-development-2019?p=98.

With further events planned in Cyprus on December 5 (The 7th Cyprus Energy Symposium) and Athens on December 12 (Seminar on Energy Efficiency in Industry and in the Public Sector)the Institute aspires to keep its members and energy professionals at large well informed on current developments across the entire energy spectrum. In this context the Institute is going ahead with its plans to organise a 2nd series of educational courses on the new energy market, on electricity and gas,in view of the introduction in Greece of EU’s "target model". The first such course which will focus on the electricity market and consists of 8 three hour sessions will commence on October 11 and will be completed by November 4. Another series which will cover the natural gas market will follow later in November and December. The instructors to these courses come from both academia and industry and are seasoned professionals with considerable experience in the operation of European energy markets.
