Statesmen's Forum: Prof. Yannis Maniatis, Greek Minister of Environment, Energy, and Climate Change
Please join us for a CSIS Statesmen's Forum, featuring Prof. Yannis Maniatis, the Greek Minister of Environment, Energy, and Climate Change, on the shifting energy dynamics in the Eastern Mediterranean and Europe. As Europe seeks to develop an Energy Union and to enhance its energy security and diversify its supply, recent energy discoveries in the Eastern Mediterranean could offer an alternative. Greece has taken considerable steps to explore its own energy resource base and develop its energy infrastructure to enhance its domestic energy security.
What are the prospects for energy sector development in Greece and across the broader region? How can Greece contribute to the expansion of Europe's Southern Gas Corridor? What impacts will the recently-announced Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) have on Greece and the rest of Europe? In light of the current geopolitical tensions with Russia and instability in the Middle East, will regional political dynamics hinder resource exploration and development? Minister Maniatis will share his insights on these topical issues.
