The Atlantic Council Central and Eastern European Energy Security Conference is the leading platform in Washington, DC, for addressing key energy security and climate issues in Central and Eastern Europe. For the seventh edition of the conference, government and private sector leaders discuss transatlantic cooperation on removing energy as an enabler of Russian aggression in the region. The conference explores how Central and Eastern Europe can advance energy security and climate action by diversifying oil and gas imports, investing in critical energy infrastructure, accelerating decarbonization, and rebuilding Ukraine’s energy system.

This event is held in cooperation with the Visegrád Group and brings together key decision-makers in the US administration, members of Congress, important stakeholders in the business community, embassies of the Central and Eastern European regions, the Delegation of the European Union, and experts from the think tank community.
