The Italian Association of Energy Economists (IAEE) is pleased to announce the 18th IAEE European Energy Conference organized in Milan on 24-27 July 2023, in cooperation with the Bocconi University – GREEN. Bocconi University, one of the top Italian research universities of international standing in business and economics will host this important event.
I’m so excited about this upcoming conference in Milan as I had the privilege to attend the previous one in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last February–thanks to Prof. Andrea Bollino, who invited me.
Carlo Andrea Bollino is a Professor of Economics at the University of Perugia and Professor of Energy Economics at the University LUISS, Rome. He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was supervised by Nobel laureate Professor Lawrence Klein. He has been a Visiting Researcher at KAPSARC since 2015, focusing on econometric analysis, electricity market reform and climate change policy analysis. He is a Visiting Professor at Technische Universität, Berlin, Germany, the President (honorary) of the Italian Association for Energy Economics.
He was the President of the IAEE in 2008, the President of GSE (Italian Renewable Energy Agency) and GRTN (Italian Electric Transmission network); Energy Advisor to the Minister of Industry and Ministry of Treasury of Italy; Chief Economist, ENI; Economist, Bank of Italy; and a Research Associate at Project Link for the United Nations. He has testified to the Italian Senate and Parliament briefings and has provided various governments with technical and policy reports on electricity market liberalization and renewable energy developments.
The main purpose of this conference will be to discuss the big changes and transformations in this transition period: the growing demand for renewables, disruption, innovation, the transition to a low carbon economy and the demand for electricity and gas.
There is a growing convergence between all energy sectors including power, transportation, infrastructure, oil and gas, renewable energy and smart cities initiatives.
Energy efficiency and renewable energy development are at the core of Europe’s commitment to a clean energy transition that serves the needs of citizens, economic development and the environment. Achieving a smart, socially fair and sustainable energy system requires strong policies, competitive businesses and technology innovation. Mastering the digital transformation of energy and buildings will be crucial for creating a thriving economy and for the success of the global clean energy transition.
As increased sector convergence and global attention to transitioning to a lower carbon economy intensifies, the purpose of this conference would be to reflect this global outlook and expand the focus of the dialogue to a broader, more comprehensive perspective of the issues energy sectors need to address in an era of deep transformation.
Concurrent sessions will be organized from accepted abstracts. Authors wishing to make paper presentations during the Concurrent Sessions must submit an abstract that briefly describes the research topic to be presented.
Submitted abstracts should include (1) overview, (2) methods, (3) results and (4) conclusions, conforming to the structure outlined in the abstract template. Abstracts are limited to no more than two pages in length.
ATTENDANCE AT THE CONFERENCE
At least one author of an accepted paper must pay the registration fees and attend the conference to present the paper. While multiple submissions by individuals or groups of authors are welcome, the abstract selection process will seek to ensure as broad participation as possible: each speaker is to present only one paper in the conference.
No author should submit more than one abstract as its single author. If multiple submissions are accepted, then a different co-author will be required to pay the reduced registration fee and present each paper. Otherwise, authors will be contacted and asked to drop one or more paper(s) for presentation.
