Energy security is a key topic on the international security agenda. This two-day conference will be a high level forum that will try to provide insight to transform the energy landscape of our world. The conference will bring together energy experts from business, government, international organisations, political realm and industry as well as leading researchers and civil society representatives.

The 1st AIEE Symposium on Energy Security - Milan 2016, was an opportunity to explore new and existing energy trends, challenges and creative solutions for the energy security, the availability of new technologies, the emergence of new market conditions and of new market operators.

Following up on the success of the last year’s event we organized this second edition, in Rome.
This year's conference provided a fresh look on the major forthcoming issues offering an excellent occasion to continue the dialogue and to share best practice and experience with delegates from all over the world.

2nd AIEE Symposium on Energy Security


The Conference aimed at providing a forum for an analysis of the new developments and a new vision of the future framework for energy security and will try to define the energy priorities for the next years and the action to be taken.

Emerging energy market trends and technologies are driving new energy security concerns and renewing perennial challenges. While energy markets are currently well supplied, security risks continue to proliferate which may impact the balance in both the short and long terms. Technological advances in the energy sector to increase capabilities and capacity for production and distribution have created new vulnerabilities. The improvements regarding the European energy security have made great progress in the recent years, yet the continent remains vulnerable to supply disruptions, although the increased interconnectedness of energy infrastructure across Europe have had a mitigating impact. Efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels to address climate change also pose security challenges.

In the past, geopolitics and the supply of oil and gas were the dominant factor determining energy security. Today, a broader and more complex spectrum of elements are interacting to both stabilize and threaten energy security.

This conference was an invitation with the goal of promoting research and information exchanges on energy security, providing a general look at the forces driving its transformation and at some of their effects. Many of them are different from anything we have seen in the past.
