Title and Abstract of the Speech:
Geopolitics of Energy
Energy Geopolitics consists of the interrelation of energy, security and international policy. This relationship enables us to better understand the many events we are experiencing today, how energy demand and supply shape international politics. It also defines what are the major challenges for global energy security, and this relationship becomes understandable in the title. Energy geopolitics should focus on both traditional and alternative energies, as it will both affect and be influenced by global geopolitical realities. History shows us how geopolitics of energy has developed as new discoveries are made and institutional, economic and technological changes occur. Today, policy makers, businessmen and researchers are facing a number of new facts in evaluating the energy system.
