The fourth edition of the international conference “AIEE Energy Symposium – Current and Future Challenges to Energy Security” was organized in Rome on 10-12 December, in collaboration with LUMSA University. Almost 200 participants, coming from 26 countries experts, researchers, teachers, managers of the main Italian and foreign energy companies met to discuss on the subject of energy security and explore new trends and challenges to find creative solutions, addressing this key issue in the international context, with particular reference to the role of traditional sources and renewable sources and the resulting effects on energy markets.
Following up on the success of the previous events, this three-day conference waas a high level forum which provided a context to transform the energy landscape of our world.  It  provided a fresh look on the major forthcoming issues offering an excellent occasion to continue the dialogue and to share best practice and experience with delegates from all over the world.  At the center of the debate are the economic and technological aspects for the security of the world’s energy systems in the perspective of decarbonisation. A very broad concept that ranges from the availability of supplies of fossil fuels to the storage of electricity from photovoltaic and wind power. The event was organized in 6 plenary sessions and 22 parallel sessions with almost 100 presentations.

Nearly 200 participants, experts coming from 20 countries, researchers, professors, managers of the main Italian and foreign energy companies, met to discuss energy security. The event was organized in 5 plenary sessions and 22 parallel sessions with 100 presentations, in which the main themes of the energy and environmental fields were addressed. In the introductory panel some of the themes that characterize the evolution of the European and Italian energy system have been debated, from the development and integration of renewable sources in the energy market to the role of gas, and the related geopolitical problems, to the contribution of technology for promote energy efficiency. The problems that have accompanied the development of the regulation of the energy markets of the various European countries in relation to the liberalization processes have been analyzed and debated, highlighting the work still to be done also in relation to the greater complexity of the energy systems in the perspective of the EU objectives to 2030. It has also been emphasized that the acceleration of innovation and electric penetration, while leading to important transformations in many consumer sectors, does not diminish the fundamental role of oil and gas. The presentations highlighted the existing commitment in the public transport sector to adapt to the increasingly challenging goals imposed at international, European and national level. At the same time, the role that traditional fuels will continue to play in highlighting their continuous qualitative improvements for environmental sustainability was highlighted. In the various concurrent sessions of the conference, in addition to the scientific contribution guaranteed by the presence of researchers from the most important universities and research institutions, an important contribution was offered by the energy  companies were fundamental for the success of the symposium.

The first edition of the international conference “AIEE Energy Symposium – Current and Future Challenges to Energy Security” was organized in Milan from 2 November to 2 December, in collaboration with the Bicocca University.

A two days event with the participation of over 200 participants, from 27 countries, experts, researchers, teachers, managers of the main Italian and foreign energy companies. In the various concurrent sessions of the conference, in addition to the scientific contribution guaranteed by the presence of researchers sent by the most important universities and research institutes in the world to present their papers, the companies contribution  was very important for the success of the symposium. The issues of particular interest were the gas market, with particular attention to the role of the Russian Federation, the electricity market, energy efficiency in the industrial and civil sectors, strategies to contain climate change, energy storage, the use of renewable sources, the environmental policies. Among the most debated geopolitical issues we recall the  important role of Turkey in the international context  for European energy supplies. The problem of climate change and policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions were also in the center of the debate. The KAPSARC Research Institute of Saudi Arabia (King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Centers) organized a special session on “Renewables and Diversification in Energy-Producing Countries”. The event was organized in 5 plenary sessions and 24 parallel sessions with more than 100 presentations.
