PSSI organized a roundtable on energy infrastructure in Central Europe

08.12.2016

On November 22, PSSI organized a roundtable on energy infrastructure in Central Europe. The event was a joint session for two projects supported by the International Visegrad fund: “Energy Market in Central Europe - New Opportunities, New Challenges” led by the Jagiellonian Club and “Energy Efficiency and Security Nexus (EESN)” led by the Institute for Energy Efficiency of Ukraine.

The roundtable gathered participants from Poland, Slovakia and Hungary as well as a number of local energy experts. It presented an excellent opportunity to address timely topics such as the current state of the regional gas infrastructure, investments realized in the past years and current development plans, as well as V4 countries’ stances towards major gas infrastructure projects that are influencing the regional gas market (e.g. Nord Stream II, Eastring or developments on the Southern corridor). Finally, participants compared approaches to energy efficiency in their respective countries and touched upon lessons learned that could be shared with Ukrainian counterparts.

This roundtable will be followed by two other sessions, which are planned to be held in Bratislava in January and in Budapest in May 2017.
