Conference Overview

The 1st IAEE Eurasian Conference will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan between 28 and 31 August 2016, and will focus on energy economic issues of the Caspian region.

Oil and gas producing countries in the Caspian region have experienced rapid economic growth over the last decade under high energy prices, while they are suffering today from cheap oil.

What are the diffusion prospects for alternative and renewable energy projects under low energy prices in the region? How can regional energy security be assured? Answers to these questions and many others will be sought in Baku under many exciting sessions featuring lively discussions with renowned international speakers.
