Central and Eastern European Energy Security Forum
GMF’s Central Eastern Europe Energy Security Forum brings together the most experienced and relevant analysts, government officials, and opinion makers from the wider region (including the EU Institutions and the United States, as well as other interested stakeholders) in a regular, data-informed discussion on issues of energy policy that are relevant for the region and the broader transatlantic policy community. The Forum reflects the increasing interest of U.S. as well as European companies in exploring new unconventional sources of energy in that region, the U.S. strategic interest in promoting European energy security, the ongoing debate about reforms in the EU energy market, and the long-term goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in both Europe and the United States.
Through convening, research and analysis, leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and capacity building, the Forum develops a more informed understanding among policymakers, industry, and the broader public of the role that the countries of Central and Eastern Europe could play in contributing to European energy security. The Forum’s activities are anchored in an annual conference in the region and a series of regional seminars and themed events.
