IENE’s long established event, the “SE Europe Energy Dialogue”, this year is to be held on June 16 - 17, 2022 in Thessaloniki in hybrid form. The purpose of this regional forum, which is being organized by IENE with the support of leading international and regional organizations and major energy companies, is to bring together high-ranking government officials, senior business executives and energy experts from all countries of S.E. Europe and beyond. The objective being the exchange of information and ideas, networking and the furthering of co-operation for the tackling of the increased global and regional energy and environmental challenges.

The special theme for this year’s SEEED, is “Energy Security, Market Integration and Sustainability in SE Europe”, which reflects the serious challenges faced today by the region’s energy sector. Energy security and a competitive price environment emerge as topics of prime importance for energy policy in the region and beyond. Furthermore, the “SE Europe Energy Dialogue” gathering in June is highly topical, given EU’s major drive to lessen Europe’s dependence on Russian oil and gas while maintaining its focus on decarbonization and Green Deal targets. The “Energy Dialogue” will also cover the latest developments in the region’s evolving natural gas, electricity and RES markets and the ongoing energy partnerships with major oil and gas suppliers. Furthermore, IENE’s background paper on “Energy Security, Market Integration and Sustainability in SE Europe”, to be released in advance, will help guide the Dialogue’s proceedings.

The SE Europe Energy Dialogue is today 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, IRENA, OSCE, SEECAO, JRC, the Energy Charter, the World Energy Council (WEC), the European Investment Bank (EIB), EBRD, the World Bank, Energy Fuel Europe, Eurelectric, Eurogas, EFET, EPIA and COGEN, OIES, AERS (Serbia) and RAE (Greece) and others. The forum’s delegates and speakers over the past years have included senior executives from major international corporations including BP, Shell, Gazprom Export, Equinor, NIGEC (Iran), OMV, EDF, CDF Suez, ENEL, RWE, EON, Endesa, but also from national champions such as PPC, Serbgas, Plinacro, CEZ, Transgas, TEIAS, Turkeler, TDinamik, Transelectrica, KESH, Bulgarian Energy Holding, SEEPEX, Athens Energy Exchange, EPIAS, Edison, ESO EAD, DEPA, DESFA, Hellenic Petroleum, Energean, Mytilineos,  and many others.

By organising this year’s “SE Europe Energy Dialogue” in hybrid format, IENE aspires to contribute once again to a high-level discussion on the region’s key energy issues but also act as a facilitator for much needed co-operation between suppliers and consumers and thus promote the role of SE Europe as a vital East-West, North-South energy bridge. So far more than 60 distinguished speakers from all countries in SE Europe and beyond have confirmed their participation with most of them joining in person.

The 13th SE Europe Energy Dialogue’s sponsors include Greece’s Public Gas Corporation (DEPA), THE Hellenic Energy Exchange (ENEX), the Hellenic Petroleum Group of Companies (HELPE) and the Kyriakidis Georgopoulos Law Firm (KG Law Firm). The forum is also supported by Energean, IBEX and EnSCo.
