|The UW Ellison Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies presents a symposium “Energy Security in Europe: Current and Future Challenges“. The symposium has two panels; the first one deals with challenges brought by the war in Ukraine and includes a representative of Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Aleksander Olech.
As the European Union as well as member states create swiftly changing policies affecting clean energy initiatives, their energy decisions show significant variability. Recent events emphasize both the need for and the challenges to establishing a unified approach to securing supply for EU states and for improving energy independence within the EU. As emerging technology revolutionizes energy markets, it has never been modre important for European countries to synchronize their standards on protecting critical energy infrastructure, including electric grids, Smart Grids, gas pipeline sensors and wind and solar technologies. This symposium will showcase cutting-edge research on where the European Union is headed on energy security and what the U.S. and the EU can learn from each other.
Panel 1 – NATO, Hybrid Warfare, and Europe’s Energy Challenge
Panel 2 – Europe’s Energy Crisis: Causes and Global Impact
This is a hybrid event. You can attend it in person at Thomson Hall room 317 at the Univ. of Washington campus or on Zoom. Online attendance requires registering. To register click here.
