energy security

Prof. Cherp co-authors a paper on the concept of energy security with Dr. Jewell

Prof. Aleh Cherp co-authors a paper on the concept of energy security with Dr. Jessica Jewell of IIASA, an EPRG alumna. The paper can be freely retrieved at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301421514004960. It argues that energy security should be conceptualized as an instance of security in general and that it can be defined as low vulnerability of vital energy systems which support critical social functions and can be drawn sectorally or geographically.

EPRG alumna Jessica Jewell: EU energy security is only as strong as its weakest link

An EPRG alumna Jessica Jewell (PhD EnvSci 2013, currently with IIASA, Austria) has written on the connection between energy security and climate change in The Conversation. Jessica argues that the most effective way to reduce Europe's greenhouse gas emissions is targeting largest emitters such as Germany, Spain or the UK whereas the most important way to increase European energy security is to target small and vulnerable economies in Eastern Europe.

CEU seeks PhD candidates in the area of energy security studies

Central European University (CEU) welcomes applicants for a PhD position in the area of energy security and future energy systems. A successful candidate will work under the supervision of Prof. Aleh Cherp to pursue the Doctor of Philosophy degree at the Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy

The research agenda will be developed to match the candidate’s interests and capacities and to advance policy-relevant knowledge on present and future national and global energy security challenges including under sustainable energy transitions. It will built on the recently completed Global Energy Assessment, where Professor Cherp led the analysis of energy security. Of particular interests might be such topics as energy security assessments and policies, and the relationship between global energy scenarios and national energy realities. These issues may be studied with respect to entire energy systems or particular energy sectors.

Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Feb, 2012 - Jul, 2012
This project supported by the ENVSEC initiative aims to strengthen the capacity of Belarusian energy and environmental decision-makers and experts in developing sustainable long-term scenarios for the future of the national energy system. Such scenarios utilize the cutting-edge energy modeling techniques and knowledge on modern energy technologies developed within the Global Energy Assessment. The outcome of the scenarios is policy advice on choosing energy pathways which enhance national energy security in an environmentally sustainable way.
