Energy in Central Europe

Thirty years after the fall of the Soviet Union, Central European countries are facing new energy challenges. This rapidly growing part of the EU has come a long way in its energy transition, but the region still lacks critical infrastructure and remains heavily dependent on Russia for energy resources. What role will alternative energy technologies and natural gas imported from outside of Europe and Russia play in Central Europe’s ongoing energy transition?

At this event, officials from Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia discussed their countries’ current energy landscapes and prospects for future development. This event was sponsored by the Baker Institute Center for Energy Studies. Follow @CES_Baker_Inst on Twitter and join the conversation online with #BakerEnergy
