Session 10: Energy Security in SEE – Connecting or Dividing?
(in cooperation with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden)
- Is there a consensus around a more multidimensional conception of energy security?
- How much autonomy in designing energy policy could SEE states have in regard to EU-Russia relations?
- How feasible is the SEE regional energy market?
- Rethinking Nuclear Energy Policy: did we learn a lesson?
- “Energy poverty” as a common heritage: is there a lack of European solidarity for pursuing multinational agendas and real dialogue? How to solve the production-consumption disparity?
- What effect would EU-Russia long-term gas-deals have on energy security in SEE?
- Is the diversification of energy-suppliers a viable/feasible solution for SEE? What happens to the South Stream project after the Nabucco failure?
- Should SEE undertake a diversification of primary energy consumption? Are fossils secure enough?
