It has achieved a considerable success during the past eight editions covering the electricity and gas markets policies, security of supply, climate change impacts on the sector and many other developments at the European level (like Polish and UK shale gas possible revolution).
In 2012 this event is hosted in Florence (Italy) by the two energy policy units at the European University Institute (“Florence School of Regulation” and “Loyola de Palacio Chair”).
The EEM 12 (10-12 May 2012) will start with an outstanding day at Palazzo Vecchio -the oldest civic center of the historic city of Florence (built in the XIII century). That opening day will host four sessions with keynote speakers from European institutions, the industry, market agents and prominent academics. It will assess the latest developments in:
- Achievement of the EU internal market
- Response to Climate Change
- Securing European energy supply
- Combining three European “energy pilars” into a single EU policy.
It will be part of the outstanding “State of the Union” event chaired by President Josep Borrell, head of European University Institute and former President of the European Parliament.
Our parallel tracks with presentations and poster sessions will be held over the gorgious Toscan hills to Fiesole in the EUI historical buildings (XIV-XVII century). They will cover a variety of energy topics, including a few new ones, focusing on the latest research. We are preparing a rich networking and social program, enabling additional discussion opportunities for the exchange of best practices.
