UP’s Prof Inglesi-Lotz named International Association for Energy Economics VP for Regional Affairs

Posted on January 29, 2021

“The energy and environmental conditions of our planet cannot be seen in isolation on a per country basis. The commitments signed in international agreements by governments towards cleaner and affordable energy services for all as per Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 of the United Nations cannot materialise without exploring our common goals and the role each country can play towards these common goals and a sustainable future.”
 
This is according to Prof Roula Inglesi-Lotz, from the University of Pretoria’s Department of Economics, as she steps into her new role as Vice President for Regional Affairs of the International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE) for the period 2021-2022.
 
The IAEE is an independent, non-profit, global membership organisation for business, government, academic and other professionals concerned with energy and related issues in the international community. A major objective of the IAEE is to provide a professional, multi-national, multi-disciplinary discussion forum for the mutual association of people interested in energy economics, as well as a means of professional communication and constructive dialogue.
 
Prof Inglesi-Lotz, whose research interests are mainly in the field of energy and environmental macroeconomics, economic growth and development, is no stranger to leadership in the field of energy economics. Since 2018, she has served as the founding President of the South African Association for Energy Economics (SAAEE), which strives to increase the understanding of how energy and economics relate to each other, and to provide a forum for the free exchange of these concepts, bringing together members from all spheres of the energy sector.
 
“The SAAEE is the 30th and amongst the newest affiliates of the IAEE, which has members in over 100 nations. The energy systems are all interconnected at regional and international level and I am very excited to further expand my contribution to energy economics in my new role,” she says.
