Southeast Europe energy issues on upcoming Brussels event agenda

Ambassador Urban Rusnák, Secretary General of the Energy Charter Secretariat, will speak on current energy security matters, including energy developments in southeast Europe, at a GEF (Greek Energy Forum) event in Brussels on May 26 titled “Transatlantic Energy Security at a Crossroads. What to expect ahead of 2020.”

To be staged at the University of Kent’s Brussels School of International Studies, the event, held against the backdrop of a complex contemporary energy reality, will also explore a number of key priorties for transatlantic energy security. These include the role of the Energy Charter in the Energy Union initiative and the new Energy Diplomacy concept, as well as the potential for US LNG exports to Europe.

GEF is an exclusive network for Greek Energy Professionals.

The Energy Charter was founded in 1994, following the end of the Cold War, a development that prompted prospects for mutually beneficial cooperation in the energy sector. The Energy Charter Treaty plays an important role as part of an international effort to build a legal foundation for energy security, based on the principles of open, competitive markets and sustainable development.
