Saturday May 20th, 2017 marked the very successful completion of the second international conference of the Hellenic Association for Energy Economics think tank "THE LANDSCAPE IN THE NEW ERA OF ENERGY TRANSITION: Challenges, investment opportunities and technological innovations".
The HAEE executive board initiated the diffusion of conclusions and relative material through the International Association for Energy Economics network in other international and national conferences and their local energy executive circle of contacts all over the world.
A team of expert associates is working on systematically recording, sorting and prioritising the positions and proposals set forth in the conference concerning Greece’s energy policy, the role of Greek government and private firms and the possible cooperation of domestic and foreign firms.
A second team will compare these results with the situation in Greek energy policy and corporate reality and will highlight the common interests and the possible joint ventures of Greek and foreign firms.
Findings and recommendations will be shared with all the affiliates of the International Association for Energy Economics worldwide to foster possible cooperations in the Greek energy market, facilitating foreign investors in their strategic planning, in benefit of Greece’s economy.
Special care is given to the promotion of the conference’s economic and media supporters as they represent the most suitable Greek organisations for international cooperations, not only in the energy sector, but in the foreign investments' market as well.
The Hellenic Association for Energy Economics is offering its members and corporate supporters the opportunity to attend the numerous international and national conferences of the IAEE affiliates in countries all over the world, and to network and get in touch with interested parties, as well as the possibility for organising on their behalf relevant energy events abroad.
