Dear Energy Colleague,

We have the pleasure to announce you to the 5th AIEE Energy Symposium on Energy Security organized by the Italian Association of Energy Economists - AIEE (www.aiee.it), the Italian affiliate of IAEE (www.iaee.org), with the support of the SDA Bocconi School of Management.

Conference overview

In this uncertain times regarding travelling around the world, social distancing and possibility to attend the event physically, hosting a virtual event is an excellent alternative and therefore we decided to hold the 5th AIEE Symposium on energy Security 2020, online.  

Our conference  will have the same structure as the previous editions because we want it to  feel as much like an in-person event as possible, with plenary sessions and keynote presentations  and several concurrent sessions which include traditional presentations, lightning talks, discussions, and interacting.

Our Symposium has become an important yearly appointment and an opportunity to discuss energy security, to explore new and existing trends, creative solutions of new technologies, the emergence of new market conditions and of new market operators. 

An appointment we do not want to miss!
