Energy Infrastructure Resilience and Sustainable Future

On 11 May, 2023, the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and the Forum for Research on Eastern Europe: Climate and Environment (FREECE) hosted the 2023 SITE Energy Talk. This year it focused on the opportunities and challenges that the energy infrastructure will face in the near future.

As we move towards sustainable, low-carbon energy systems, it is essential to guarantee the energy infrastructure’s resilience against various challenges, such as supply chain disruptions, network congestion, rising energy costs, and other potential threats. Valuable insights have been gained from recent shocks such as the Covid-19 pandemic, the energy crisis, and the ongoing Ukrainian war concerning the energy infrastructure’s resilience.

How well-prepared is the Nordic energy infrastructure for the green transition from a security of energy supply perspective? How has Russia’s full-scale invasion impacted Ukrainian energy infrastructure and energy security in the Baltic Sea region? These and other topics were discussed by leading energy experts in the 2023 SITE Energy Talk.
