Dr. Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) & EEG Alumni, visited TU Wien

It was again a great honour and pleasure that our friend and EEG/TU Wien Alumni, Dr. Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), visited us today at his Alma Mater, where his impressive professional career began more than 30 years ago. Fatih's keynote speech and the subsequent joint discussion on the current challenging global energy situation and the enormous efforts required to decarbonize our energy systems were not only an inspiration for more than 400 invited Austrian guests from academia, ministries, policy and decision making, the energy industry, associations, NGOs and many others, but especially for many of our students and young professionals. Thank you very much, Fatih, for your special appreciation of the youth. You always attach great importance to the fact that many of them are invited and given the opportunity to discuss with you whenever you visit us in Vienna. And also special thanks to all those who contributed to the organisation and success of today's exclusive event at TU Wien...
