The European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) cordially invites you to an on-the-record event on European and UK energy security.

Energy security is not only about guaranteeing predictable prices for consumers and businesses. How much we pay for our gas and electricity is the result of numerous economic and geopolitical considerations. Recent dramatic changes in the international and European energy landscape –deteriorating EU-Russia relations, an increasingly ‘energy-dominant’ US, the Qatar crisis, and energy market volatility – once again throw the security of UK and European energy supply into the spotlight. Central Europe has been at the crossroads of many of these crises and learned to adapt its strategies. What lessons can the UK business and policy community draw from experiences in Central Europe?

This event will highlight how changing energy circumstances in Central Europe can affect energy security in Europe and the UK.
