Symposium Overview and Objectives

The Hellenic Association for Energy Economics is happy to announce that the 6th Energy Transition Symposium “Looking Ahead with Optimism, Beyond the Covid Era”, will be held from Tuesday, 28 September to Friday, 1 October 2021. For yet another year, the annual Symposium will serve as an open-dialogue platform, where state, academia and private sector representatives will contribute to debates and exchange of views on crucial energy matters.

Considering the extraordinary circumstances of 2020, the 6th Symposium will inevitably focus on the turbulences caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and its prints on the global energy system. Despite the sharp decrease in global emissions last year, due to the recession of economic activities, enormous efforts are still required to reach the ambitious target of a net zero carbon economy. Governments need to take decisive actions and implement structural measures to accelerate the clean energy transition and pave the way towards a sustainable recovery. On top of that, renewable energy solutions can play a key role, providing a fast response to the pandemic and building more resilient energy systems. These issues, among many others, will be addressed in detail during the Symposium’s sessions.
