Last 14th October, NESOI participated in the EU Regions Week with the online conference "Islands as leaders towards net zero: from clean energy vision to energy action". Ms Marina Montero, Technical Lead from the Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat opened the session and explained that the marketplace has a very important role to fulfill in the energy transition: energy island projects are looking for finance on one side, whereas investor are looking for projects in another side. Community engagement is vital to close that gap.

The Hellenic Association for Energy Economics (HAEE) organised this year the 6th Energy Transition Symposium: "Looking ahead of the COVID era", which gathered over 300 participants from different backgrounds (academia, public sector, business professionals or media), all with a common interest of joining the discussion about energy-related issues, as well as witnessing the analysis of opportunities and barries in the sector from top-tier leaders in the energy field.
