Rethinking European Energy Security

Energy security is a key component of NATO’s security architecture. The disruption of energy supplies —as experienced since the unprovoked and unjustified Russian invasion of Ukraine—, led to price volatility, supply shortages, and security concerns about critical infrastructure. The societal, strategic, and financial ramifications of such economic uncertainty can undermine the stability and security of Allies, and therefore analyzing tendencies of the global energy transition should be a cornerstone of NATO’s strategy for strengthening the resilience of members’ energy sectors.

YATA Germany, YATA Hungary, and YATA Spain cordially invite everyone interested in the topic for an expert-level discussion about the geopolitical implications of current tendencies with an outlook on how NATO and its member states should adapt to the new challenges.
