The 2nd International Conference on Energy Transition in the Mediterranean Area

@ Thessaloniki, Greece, 17-19 Oct 2022

The 2nd International Conference on Energy Transition in the Mediterranean Area continues the idea of establishing a major energy platform in the region. The 1st International Conference on Energy Transition in the Mediterranean Area took place in Cagliari in 2019 within the STORES project (Interreg Mediterranean Programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund). The Conference will focus on topics of interest to the Energy Challenges in the Mediterranean area. It intends to address the vast technological changes in all areas of the electric energy business, products, equipment, methods, and so on.

SyNERGY MED 2022 will provide a forum for discussion among researchers, policy-makers, regional and local authorities, renewable energy clusters and main actors/stakeholders about the energy technology challenges in these regions and solutions for boosting economic and sustainable development.

Blue Mediterranean: The Mediterranean region is largely dependent on supply from third countries for oil, gas and coal; even though it has exceptional untapped potential for the deployment of renewable energy sources. Furthermore, most regions within the Mediterranean, particularly islands and rural areas are characterised by isolated or weak power networks, which either have a high carbon footprint or pose several market, technical and social barriers to the wider penetration of intermittent Renewable Energy Sources (RES).

This Conference will significantly benefit engineers and technicians through state-of-the-art presentations by major equipment suppliers, researchers, utility specialists, invited speakers and discussions by international participants. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
