28 April, 2015 – 09:30 to 11:00
Premises of Central European Policy Institute (CEPI), Klariská 14, 811 03

Attendance at this event is by invitation only and discussion will be held in Slovak language. 

Situaton on energy markets, energy policies of member states and of the EU as such are building stones of the envisioned Energy Union. The same applies to diversifying external suppliers of energy as well as improving energy infrastructure in the common European framework. In Slovakia, the completion of Mochovce nuclear power plant and better energy interconnectedness with regional partners are seen as the way forward.

But is Slovakia prepared for Energy Union sufficiently? Are Commission’s complaints over Slovakia’s insufficiently transparent regulation policy substantiated? In which areas can Central Europe contribute to a functioning Energy Union together? Under what circumstances could the member states be more inclined towards transferring regulatory competences to European level? And can we be certain that the Energy Union will contribute to a more effective regulation? Not only these questions will be discussed with:
