The King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) in collaboration with the Saudi Association for Energy Economics (SAEE) will organize the 44th International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE) annual conference at KAPSARC, Riyadh from February 4-8, 2023. It will be the first time that the IAEE conference will be held in the Middle East.

The conference will have as its theme “Pathways to a Clean, Stable and Sustainable Energy Future.” It aims to provide a platform for experts and specialists to share their knowledge in the field of conventional and renewable energy, environmental challenges and the stability of energy markets.

The conference will address seven topics, including economy and energy diversification; energy, development, and climate change; energy transition and pathways; investment and financing; mobility and technology; efficiency and industrial competitiveness; and energy volatility, security, and access.

Approximately 500 delegates from academia, industry, government, international organizations, and others interested in global, regional and local energy matters from the Kingdom, the region and across the world are expected to attend.

The IAEE was established in 1977 to advance knowledge and understanding of energy economics and their real-world application. The IAEE annual conference aims to tackle energy-related issues. The 43rd IAEE Annual Conference will be held in Tokyo, Japan in 2022.

In order to shape the future of energy, SAEE and KAPSARC launched a website https://iaee2023.saudi-aee.sa/ to serve as an ideal platform for energy and energy and environmental professionals and a reference for the conference. All those interested in energy-related issues can submit their research and scientific papers via the website.

The host of the conference, KAPSARC is an advisory think tank within global energy economics and sustainability providing advisory services to entities and authorities in the Saudi energy sector to advance Saudi Arabia’s energy sector and inform global policies through evidence-based advice and applied research. The co-host, SAEE, is a non-profit civil society that aims to promote energy economics in the Kingdom by holding events and enhancing dialogue and discussion around the challenges facing the energy sector and its related industries.
