The aim of this workshop is to address the following questions: what are the energy policy implications of the convergence of energy security among the Baltic Sea region countries? What lessons can be drawn from the Nord Stream 2 fiasco?
This workshop discusses these questions with a particular focus on three countries on the Baltic Sea coast: Germany, Latvia, and Finland. The ex-post analysis of the changing approaches to the project, not least in the political arena, reveals the complexity of competing interests and agendas that now will struggle to realign – with all the policy effects on the domestic and regional energy transition agenda.
The workshop participants are various stakeholders and actors, particularly from the USA, Germany, Latvia, and Finland. Participants will include politicians, researchers, policymakers, analysts, private sector and EU officials. During the workshop, the participants will deliberate on the aforementioned issues providing analysis and viewpoints from various angles.
