I believe that the answer for Central Europe’s energy security issues is a complex one. Renewables, energy efficiency, smart solutions, nuclear energy, infrastructure, LNG, domestic resources and well-defined regulation are part of the equation. However, the suitable portfolio differs from one country to another. The art is to find the subtle balance of the well-known elements. Budapest Energy Summit as a fresh and bottom-up initiative will surely contribute to better express the region’s specificities and create an even stronger link with international energy trends.
