For a long time, energy security in Ukraine and Central and Southeast Europe by and large referred to security of gas supplies, particularly regarding dependence, interconnections and gas transit. In light of Ukraine’s recent commitments to carbon neutrality, implications of the European Green Deal, as well as global trends towards a steady fossil-fuel phase out, there is a need to reassess the conventional concept of energy security in the region.
The webinar will address the question on how the European Green Deal and the global effort to combat climate change is changing the context of energy security, not at least of natural gas. A new climate policy narrative potentially brings new forms of cooperation for Ukraine’s energy sector focusing on decarbonisation, innovation and economic growth. It could offer Ukraine and the wider region the opportunity to develop other energy sectors, for example, developing green hydrogen and renewables supply chains.
