The Greek Energy Forum (GEF), in collaboration with the American College of Greece organised for the second consecutive year the Energy Info Seminars, delivered to ACG and Greek public universities students from the fields of business, energy, political sciences, international relations, engineering, and law studies.
The objective of the seminar was to offer students the ability to gain a thorough understanding of the multiple factors that are simultaneously at play when it comes to how energy is produced, transported, priced, traded and consumed. An introduction to the major issues concerning the energy sector, including the latest developments regarding energy prices and energy security in Europe, as well as the energy transition was further provided. In particular, in these twin 2.5-hour introductory seminars students got useful insights into the following:
- How does an energy system work?
- Which EU energy policies affect climate change and energy security?
- What are the major energy concerns for the upcoming winter in Greece and the EU?
- How the war in Ukraine affects the future of energy in Europe and the world?
- What are the key challenges in today's energy transition?
- Which technologies could facilitate the transition to a greener future?
