Conference: Eastern Mediterranean Energy: Moving Forward

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, PRIO Cyprus Centre, the Atlantic Council and Istituto Affari Internazionali invite you to the conference “Eastern Mediterranean Energy: Moving Forward”; this conference aims to elaborate on developments and perspectives of Energy in the Eastern Mediterranean

The significant offshore natural gas discoveries of recent years by Israel, Cyprus, and Egypt have led to growing anticipation of further finds in the Eastern Mediterranean. These developments point to a future for the region as an important gas province, which in turn has important implications as regards the energy outlook, economy, and geopolitics in the region. However, progress so far towards monetisation particularly of the Israeli and Cypriot resources has been frustratingly slow. Also, the discovery of offshore hydrocarbon resources has compounded the regional political landscape further, thus rendering the obstacles in the way of regional gas development more challenging. A forum of experts will be giving speeches and presentations in three different panels, each one addressing relevant aspects of the Energy debate. Following an analysis of the global energy trends in its regional and local implications the last panel explored the perspectives for renewable energy instead of conventional energy sources such as gas and oil.

The panels’ topics will be

  • Global Developments & their Impact on the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Oil & Gas Industry: Prospects for the Region
  • Energy Transition & Renewables in the Eastern Mediterranean
