The Conference Objectives

Recent events - such as the conflicts within several North African and Middle East oil and gas-exporting countries, and the nuclear disaster in Japan - have added elements of uncertainty in the already complex evolution of the energy situation in the world and in Europe in particular.
Security of supply, geopolitical aspects and environmental problems are once more at the forefront.
The Conference aims at providing a forum for an analysis of the new developments and a new vision of the future.
No better stage can be imagined for this discussion than the magic and fragile environment of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The first plenary sessions of the 12th IAEE European Energy Conference will therefore be dedicated to the evolution of demand and to the new energy markets less dependent on major commodities.

A debate will follow on how to deal with climate change through better regulation of CO2 emissions and what opportunities Europe can get from these new regulations.
The last sessions of the Conference will deal with energy security in a geopolitical context that is getting more and more complex and difficult in all the main areas of the world .

Besides these main topics the 12th IAEE Conference will also discuss all the issues related to the environmental change and its new perspectives, such as energy efficiency, developing renewable sources, biofuels and sustainable transportation. 8 plenary and 80 concurrent sessions will be organized by the AIEE - together with the International Association for Energy Economics - IAEE in cooperation with Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei and Ca' Foscari University of Venice.
