The Conference

The 7th International Scientific Conference on “Energy and Climate Change” of the PROMITHEASnet will take place at the premises of NKUA (Kostis Palamas building) on October 8-10, 2014 in Athens, Greece. The event is asked to be set under the auspices of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation organization (BSEC) as it happened in all past years.
The Conference, starting from 2013, is scheduled to promote the Green Economy issue and following its structure to bring together members and representatives from the scientific community, governmental authorities, members of parliaments, market stakeholders, banking officers and representatives from international and regional organizations.
This year the event is oriented towards “Green economy”, in an effort to promote the BSEC Task Force for the Green Energy Development, to facilitate the exchange of scientific knowledge and best practices on latest efforts to promote the Framework of Various Approaches and the New Market Mechanisms as they are shaped through the ongoing negotiations.
The Conference is divided in three (3) main parts. The first part is devoted to policies promoting the Green Energy Development and intends to invite members of the BSEC-Task Force to present their national policies on Climate Change Mitigation, RES and Energy Efficiency. The second part is devoted to scientific presentations, as it happened in all previous years. Finally the third part is shaped as a “Brokerage event” that will bring together scientists and engineers with policy makers and market stakeholders so as to increase their cross-interaction promoting innovative solutions and cooperation on common importance topics. The whole programme, as usual, will be assorted by a qualitative cultural programme.

The History

The PROMITHEAS Conference started as an activity of a FP6 funded project and has developed as an annual Conference for scientists and researchers working in energy and climate change policy issues. The 1st PROMITHEAS Conference titled “Energy Investments and Trade Opportunities” in 2008 was a two-day event focused on political and scientific topics. 
The PROMITHEAS Conferences titled “Energy and Climate Change” that followed were usually two-day events, but were dedicated exclusively on research issues. All events are hosted by the oldest university of Greece, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA); organized by the Energy Policy and Development Centre (KEPA) of the NKUA, coordinator of the PROMITHEAS Network and set under the auspices of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) Organization.

Organization

The Energy Policy and Development Centre (NKUA-KEPA), coordinator of the PROMITHEAS Net is an academic research institute (within the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens). The PROMITHEAS network includes so far twenty five (25) members from sixteen (16) countries of S.E. Europe, Black Sea, Caspian Sea and Central Asia. KEPA is a member of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) since December 2011.  
The activities of the Centre are mainly related to energy geopolitics, regional energy markets, promotion of energy investments and trade, environmental implications of energy use, development and evaluation of M/A policy portfolios, the energy interconnections and the power sector.
