Monthly, the Energy Offline Meet-up gives participants a chance to share their ideas on a wide range of energy topics in Hungary and Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. Join us for a coffee or a cocktail for behind-the-scenes perspectives on the energy sector.

From an energy policy standpoint, CEE is the continent's laboratory for working out how to simultaneously fulfill the objectives of the EU's energy policy triangle: reduced greenhouse gas emissions, security of supply and affordability/economic competitiveness. Both EU member states, and other countries in the region that are part of the Energy Community, are taking unique approaches to fulfilling those goals, e.g. Hungary building new reactors at Paks, Poland's construction of the Świnoujście LNG terminal, Romania's pursuit of indigenous, offshore oil and gas resources, or Austria's enthusiasm for renewable power, just to name a few. Previous gas shut-offs from the CEE region's main natural gas supplier, Gazprom, as well as the Ukraine crisis in 2014, have highlighted dependence upon a sole source of natural gas; however, the prospect of real source diversification seems elusive in light of these countries' enthusiasm for helping Russia build the South Stream pipeline.
