The Geopolitical Impact of Nord Stream 2.0 on European Energy Security

On February 26, 2020 in Vienna, Austria Cepconsult s.r.o. took part in panel discussion on ‘The Geopolitical Impact of Nord Stream 2.0 on European Energy Security’ organized by the Austrian Institute for European and Security Policy and hosted by Diplomatische Akademie Wien.

 

Under the moderation by Dr. Werner Fasslabend, President of AIES the issue was discussed by Prof. Dr. Johannes Pollak, Director at Webster University, Dr. Andreas Umland, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation (Kiev, Ukraine), Ana Otilia Nut, MA Policy Analyst on energy and infrastructure at Expert Forum (Bucharest, Romania) and Dr. Anton Shekhovtsov, External Lecturer at the University of Vienna (Vienna, Austria).

 

Given the deep interest of the NS2 project participants in its speedy implementation and the presence of a significant number of opposing countries, the discussion turned out to be very lively.

 

Approaches to ensuring European energy security are diverse, and the polarization of the views of the Energy Community members may lead to its split on the basis of routing Russian gas supplies, which will remain an important source of energy for Europeans for a long time to come.
