The Hellenic Association for Energy Economics will host the 6th annual Energy Transition Symposium, at Theoxenia Palace Hotel in Kifisia, Athens, Greece, for four consecutive days, from Tuesday, 28 September to Friday, 1 October 2021, offering the unique opportunity for a thorough exchange of experience and knowledge in the important global energy sector. ESCP Business School and its Energy Management Centre (EMC) will take part as Knowledge Partners at the event.
Following the unusual circumstances of 2020, HAEE’s flagship gathering on energy transition will 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.
