On the 8th of November 2022, World Energy Council/Romanian National Committee and Future Energy Leaders in partnership with Transelectrica, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest and Transgaz, will organize, with physical presence, the conferenc ”ENERGY TRILEMMA IN THE CONTEXT OF EU FUNDED PROGRAMMES“.

The current momentum the world is going through is significant for the energy sector, which plays a key role in the challenges mankind is facing. As we all experience an energy crisis never seen before, the world is increasingly aware that energy affects every aspect of our lives.

The World Energy Council recommended over a decade ago five important tools in the energy transition to achieve CO2 reduction and climate change targets. The Energy Trilemma is one of them.

The Romanian National Committee of the World Energy Council wishes to highlight the importance of the three dimensions of the overall concept of the Energy Trilemma. The Energy Trilemma argues that a successful energy transition can only be achieved by maintaining focus on all 3 pillars - Energy Security, Affordability and Climate Sustainability to ensure that no one in the energy chain is left behind.

In planning the RNC-WEC events for 2022, we are dedicating the Energy Trilemma conference in November 2022, following the World Energy Council's Energy Trilemma Summit in Aberdeen, where a new methodology for calculating the Energy Trilemma Index was launched.

The 3 dimensions of the Energy Trilemma will be the main topics of discussion at the conference:

- Energy security: national and regional,

- Climate sustainability: in the context of the Green Deal,

- Affordability: energy poverty and the vulnerable consumer.

Thus, through this event, we will address the methodology for determining the Energy Trilemma Index, as a very powerful tool of the World Council for the global assessment of member countries based on the indicators resulting according to the three pillars - the vertices of the triangle. We want to bring together representatives of the most important actors in the energy system to identify the main challenges and solutions needed to ensure a secure, sustainable and affordable energy transition at national and regional level throughout the energy chain, from the household consumer to large energy producers.

Participation is free of charge and registration is now open here.

The topics will be discussed in Romanian language
