Before the appointment, Professor Glachant has served as Vice President for Communications at IAEE for the years 2019-21; and received the IAEE Award for ‘Outstanding contributions to energy economics & literature’ in 2018.

Professor Glachant and his FSR Energy team led the digital strategy of the first IAEE Virtual Conference in June 2021 which brought together a global audience of 1,000 policymakers, academics, heads of governments, consultants, and big industry players from the energy sector to share knowledge, dialogue and network in 160 live sessions.

More information about the conference and a thorough commentary of the sessions can be found here.

IAEE is a non-profit organization, with more than 4,000 members in over 100 countries, that is committed to the exchange of ideas and experiences among academics & practitioners interested in energy & environmental economics. The IAEE publishes two scientific journals: The Energy Journal; Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy (of which Jean-Michel Glachant was first editor-in-chief in 2012-16); and a magazine, the Energy Forum.

The association organises international conferences addressing critical issues in the sectors of Energy, Climate and Environmental Policy and provides a forum where policy issues are presented, considered, and discussed during both formal and informal sessions.
