Solidarity and Security of gas supply: the (im)possible match?

Join our online debate on 28 September 2017, 10am CEST

On 12th September, the European Parliament voted in the plenary the revised Security of Gas Supply Regulation. The aim of the new regulation is to prevent potential gas supply crises and, for the first time, it applies the solidarity principle. It means that in the event of a serious gas crisis, neighbouring Member States will be obliged to help their neighbours out to ensure gas supply to protected consumers – households and essential social services. There are more novelties, as the new legislation strengthens regional cooperation and transparency, as natural gas utilities will be obliged to notify long-term contracts that are relevant for EU security of supply.

During the event, the experts will discuss in details the main changes proposed by the revised Security of Gas Supply Regulation and their potential impact on energy security in the EU. They will also try to address the fundamental question –in case of emergency, (how) can solidarity and the need for security coexist?

Moderator:

Ilaria Conti, Head of FSR Gas

  • Andris Piebalgs, former Energy Commissioner and Senior Fellow at FSR
  • Walter Boltz, former Vice-Chair of the ACER Board of Regulators and Vice-President of the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER)
