European Energy Security: From Diversification Options towards the Integrated Energy Market

by Anita Orbán
Ambassador-at-Large for Energy Security, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary

 

The presentation will provide an overview of the evolution of energy security considerations in the European discussion on energy policy. Energy security has been one of the driving factors in European energy policy manifesting in the progress made on the Southern Gas Corridor initiative. At the same time, achievements made towards market integration have had a larger impact on energy security than expected. This has made the integrated market the best attraction for any potential new supplier and the best answer to energy security challenges.
