The PSSI-hosted expert meeting of the Working Group on V4 Energy Security adopts its recommendations and a background document for the governments of Visegrad countries.
On January 25, 2011, the Working Group on V4 Energy Security convened at PSSI to debate the objectives and possibilities of regional energy cooperation of the V4 countries. The group is part of a larger initiative called the “V4 Think Tank Platform” with the ambition of becoming a new and efficient instrument enhancing cooperation within the Visegrad Group. The working group consists of governmental, corporate and NGO experts from the 4 Visegrad countries (for the list of participants please see the Opinion Paper below). The project is sponsored by the Visegrad Fund and the first meeting of the working group in Prague was organized and coordinated by PSSI, SFPA, CEUENS and the OSW.
The issues discussed concerned the possibilities and instruments for the formulation of common V4 positions toward EU energy initiatives/policies as well as the implementation of common V4 regional energy projects. The debate was divided into three clusters: 1) gas and electricity, 2) security of oil supply and 3) climate change. The experts came up with a number of proposals and measures aimed at enhancing the energy security of the region and a better coordination of V4 energy policies. An opinion paper of the working group on the Communication of the European Commission “The Future Role of Regional Initiatives” was sent to the EC. Learn more about the project and read the expert suggestions in the Recommendations, Background and Opinion Paper documents.
