It is an undeniable fact that we are witnessing a new evolving era in the global energy scenery. This volatile environment poses serious questions, challenges and opportunities for countries, industries, professionals and academics. Apart from globally oriented concerns, the Conference will focus on the European energy sector which should constantly cope with uncertainties in the South-Eastern European region, which is a very sensitive area due to continuously changing geopolitical and social conditions.

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

Which are the energy revolutions of the 21st century? Which are the geopolitics of energy? Can we foresee the future of green transportation? How can the energy storage be assured? Will renewables increase their share in the immediate future? Will the new "EU winter package" become a new successful energy policy for the Europeans?

Answers to these and many other questions will be sought during the academic and industry oriented sessions of the Conference. Athens is ideal for this conference as it is strategically located, allowing it to have an important role for conventional and renewable energy related policies in this era. In addition, Athens is the ideal location for the Conference as it combines unique ancient monuments, museums and scenery, all these in a modern and vivid city in the Mediterranean shores with lots of social and cultural activities. Thus the Conference will provide a unique opportunity exchange of academic knowledge, for networking and enhancing communication amongst all participants.
