Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and the Embassy of Finland on Thursday, July 19, 2018 for a conversation about European energy security with Finland’s Minister of the Environment, Energy, and Housing, Kimmo Tiilikainen. Europe has been at the forefront of people’s minds lately, with talk of the NATO Summit, Nord Stream 2, and the upcoming meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Helsinki dominating the news cycle. Mr. Tiilikainen will join us to discuss the Finnish perspectives on energy security in Europe and the relationship between Europe and the United States in that regard.
In his remarks and a moderated discussion with Atlantic Council Global Energy Center’s David Livingston, Mr. Tiilikainen will touch on topics such as how renewables factor into the conversation about energy security, the role of gas and nuclear power, relations with Russia and Nord Stream 2, and activities in the Arctic. He will also discuss the agenda for US-European cooperation. A light breakfast will be served.
