12th IAEE European Energy Conference
Date: 9 – 12 September 2012
Location: Venice - Italy
The Italian affiliate of the IAEE (AIEE) will be the host of the 12th IAEE European Energy Conference - "ENERGY CHALLENGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY". The conference, organised by the AIEE - The Italian Association of Energy Economists is organised with the support of Ca' Foscari University of Venice and Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei.
The geopolitical events that are changing the international context and the costs of energy supply in most of the European countries and world industrialized nations, make us believe that there will be significant changes in the energy sector during the next years.
The oil markets and the petroleum products will be characterized by high volatility and instability, with rising prices; the gas market will be more open and less tied to oil prices: the coal market, as well as the renewables market will be in strong recovery.
The nuclear accident in Fukushima has brought uncertainty about the development of nuclear power in many countries where this source was present or was being considered as a future resource, thus leading to a closure or a stand-by of many nuclear power plants. This will have two effects: the first is a greater reliance on fossil fuels for electricity production, the second is a negative impact on the environmental sustainability and on the future monitoring of the climate change on our planet.
The increasing dependence on fossil fuels, the problems of security of supply and the best solutions for mitigating climate change require urgent measures that Europe should quickly adopt.
The deadline for abstract submissions is April 9, 2012.
