Vulnerable Slovakia? The Future of Energy Security

Prepared by AmCham member: Čarnogurský ULC

Energy security is currently one of the most important aspects of national security for all countries. It is closely linked to every country’s economy and is one of the main prerequisites for sustainable economic development. Recent disruptions to the world’s energy supply, the gas crisis in Europe in 2009, the global financial and economic crisis and the accident at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima in early 2011 have again prompted discussion among governments about energy security.
