16th IAEE - Ljubljana

16th IAEE - Ljubljana

Energy markets are becoming increasingly complex. Over the past decades, we have witnessed tremendous changes in the industry’s fundamentals induced by policy and technological advancement, which required redesigning of markets. Climate policies aimed at decarbonisation extensively contributed to the changed energy mix. Recent shifts in geopolitical relations with the EU partners additionally add to the industry’s complexity and uncertainty. The EU energy policy in the next decade continues to be directed towards achieving competitive, secure and sustainable energy system, which calls for huge investments in infrastructure and low-carbon technology with increased involvement of private capital.

Early bird registration is until 7 June 2019!

The central topic of this conference will be to assess the impacts and identify the main challenges of these events for all energy segments: oil, natural gas and power markets through the entire value chain in order to design a sustainable policy for the following decade. The main question to be addressed is: Have we learned from the experience how to design effective policies for the next decade together with all stakeholders – consumers, companies and governments? We invite you to be a part of this debate by attending this conference and exploring the vibrant city of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and the seat of the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER).
