It was set under the auspices of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization (BSEC) and the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI).

It started as an activity of a FP6 funded project. The 1st PROMITHEAS Conference titled “Energy Investments and Trade Opportunities” in 2008 was a two-day event focused on political and scientific topics. Now, the Conference is divided into three (3) main parts, one per day.

The first day was devoted to the 7th “Green Energy Investments” Forum aiming to bring together policy and decision makers with market players and explore opportunities for investments that promote the transition to a low carbon economy and the achievement of the 7th Sustainable Development Goal (Clean, Affordable and Modern Energy).

The second “Scientific Sessions” was devoted to peer – viewed presentations and discussions on relevant to energy and climate change research topics, as in all previous years. Additionally, topics relevant to SDG7 are now also included.

Finally, the third was shaped as a Brokerage session that bringing together scientists, policy makers and market stakeholders and facilitate them to present their activities (projects and programs), discuss about funding opportunities, mainly in the context of Horizon 2020 calls and finally to increase the cross-interaction on innovative ideas and cooperation on common importance topics.
