SEleNe CC Three-Year Milestone: An Evening of Celebration

Date: November 27, 2023

SeleNe CC (Southeast Electricity Network Coordination Center) celebrated three years of successful operation on November 27th, 2023. The event took place in Thessaloniki, at the Makedonia Palace Hotel.

The evening commenced with an insightful and inspiring speech by Mr. I. Kambouris, the President and CEO of SEleNe CC. Distinguished figures in the energy sector, including the Deputy Minister of Energy and Environment, Ms. Alexandra Sdoukou, Mr. Zbyněk Boldiš, President of ENTSO-E (European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity), Ms. Maria Barosso Gomes representing ACER (European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators), and Mr. Georgios Loizos, Director of Strategy and International Affairs & Head of Electricity Networks and New Technologies at Regulatory Authority for Energy, Waste & Water (RAEWW) addressed the gathering.

The speakers applauded the pivotal role of Regional Coordination Centers (RCCs) in advancing the energy transition and expressed satisfaction with the swift and effective integration of SEleNe CC into the European network security system.

The event drew a distinguished audience, including representatives from local authorities, managing directors of all RCCs, and executives from Transmission System Operators of southeast Europe (IPTO, ESO-EAD, TERNA SpA, Transelectrica, EMS). Additionally, members of the academic community from Thessaloniki honored us with their presence.

Adding a cultural touch to the festivities, a musical performance by a band from the Department of Music Science and Art of the University of Macedonia filled the air with Balkan and Anatolian Mediterranean melodies.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who joined us in celebrating this achievement!
