Eurasian Series Conferences

Oil and gas producing countries in the Caspian basin and Central Asia region have experienced rapid economic growth over the last decade under high energy prices, while suffering from highly volatile global energy prices. These countries have rich hydrocarbon, hydro, renewable and alternative energy resources and geopolitical advantages. There are issues with rational use and effective management of these energy resources. Playing an important role for Europe's energy security, the efficient use of investment and innovative opportunities in the energy sector of these countries and the formation of a regional energy market are among the most crucial issues.

To address the energy challenges in Eurasia region, the IAEE has started conducting a series of Eurasian conferences. The 1st IAEE Eurasian Conference on the topic of the “Energy Economics Emerging from the Caspian Region:  Challenges and Opportunities” was held on 28-31 August, 2016 in Baku, Azerbaijan. The 2nd IAEE Eurasian Conference on the topic of the “Energy in Eurasia: Economic Perspectives on Challenges, Risks and Opportunities” was held on 13-14 October 2017, in Zagreb, Croatia. The 3rd IAEE Eurasian Conference on the topic “Implications of global developments within the energy industry in the Caspian and Central Asia Region” was held on 18-20 October 2018, in Baku, Azerbaijan. The 4th IAEE Eurasian Conference on the topic “Energy Resources of the Caspian and Central Asia: Regional and Global Outlook​” was held on 17-19 October 2019, in Nur-sultan (Astana), Kazakhstan.
