Record oil prices and increasing global demand security of energy supply has become a major concern for the emerging European countries.

The increasing energy dependence, together with a decrease of the energy production of the region and a limited combined contribution from renewable and nuclear energies has added further to the urgency of this debate.

The issue of security of energy supply has become a major long-term geopolitical, economic, environmental and social concern for the emerging European countries. In this unstable energy landscape of the twenty-first century, the question is especially how current developments can match this scenario.

In this context, the emerging European countries urgently need to develop an enhanced common approach to the security of energy supplies and look for new means to reduce the energy dependence.

Different consumer, producer, developed or developing countries, being dependent or not on energy imports, have different priorities, interests and needs. For some, it is important to secure energy supplies to their markets, whilst for others it is more crucial to secure access to the European market for their energy resources, and some seek to stabilize energy prices at a high level, others at a low level.

The 4th Emerging Europe Energy Summit will cover all these issues both in terms of a diagnosis approach to the problem and some evidence-based pointers towards solutions.

This year’s edition of the Summit will provide the audience with interactive discussions when speaker and delegates will exchange expert opinions, views and insights on industry happenings, regulations, investments, finance, renewable energy, nuclear energy, transmission and distribution, energy and emissions trading, energy risk and security, grid development and integrity, fuel supplies, oil prices, oil & gas transportation projects, trends and other challenges that the oil & gas and electricity industries are facing today and will continue to face in the next decades.
