Looking back on a successful conference
It was a great pleasure to host the 41st IAEE International Conference in Groningen. We can look back at a successful conference with many great speakers and visitors. About 650 delegates from all over the world spoke on a wide variety of subjects within the energy economics field. The central theme of the conference, Transforming Energy Markets, has been discussed in 7 plenary sessions, 6 round tables and 91 concurrent sessions. In addition we offered 3 poster sessions, 3 master classes, 1 doctoral seminar, 2 technical excursions and a varied social programme.
We are very grateful to all speakers who have shared their views with us and inspired us for lively debates which helped all of us to obtain a better understanding of the economics and business of energy markets.
This conference could not have been organized without the help of many people. I would like to thank all members of the local organisation committee as well as the scientific committee for their efforts and support. Special thanks go to our sponsors for their generous support and for their involvement in the organisation of the round tables.
Hope to see you all next year in Montreal, for the 42nd IAEE International Conference.
