This interview provides insights into critical aspects of energy security amidst geopolitical tensions and evolving energy landscapes. It begins by examining how the NATO Energy Security Centre of Excellence has adapted its policies in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It then delves into the question of consensus on extending protection to energy facilities in third countries, with a focus on the inclusion of challenges from regions like Africa and the Middle East in Europe’s energy security strategies, particularly concerning imports. Finally, it explores potential threats to the energy sector stemming from the emergence of new energy sources in Central-Eastern Europe, such as nuclear power plants and wind farms.
