U.S. Ambassador Norman L. Eisen Debates Energy Security at Charles University

18.03.2011

PSSI, in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy and Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University, organized a debate on energy and energy security with the new U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic, Norman L. Eisen.

On March 15, 2011, Mr. Eisen came to the Faculty of Social Scineces to speak to an audience of over 80 students, young professionals from business, government and academia, NGO representatives and journalists. The U.S. Ambassador spoke about global energy and energy-security challenges and the ways in which they can be dealt with. With respect to U.S. and EU energy security, Mr. Eisen highlighted three key principles: Europe’s energy security is in the interest of the United States and vice versa, diversity of supply is of great importance and market-generated solutions are usually the best. He outlined the transition to clean fuels and to a sustainable energy future, which is very high on President Obama’s agenda. According to Mr. Eisen, nuclear energy could become one of the key components in this transition, having zero CO2 emissions and being one of the safest. He believes that there is great potential for Czech-American cooperation in the field of nuclear energy, since both nations have profound expertise and a developed industrial base in this sector. Mr. Eisen considers calls for halting the nuclear renaissance in the face of the recent disaster in Japan premature and unjustified.
