  Andrej Chotejev. Energy cocktail for the Baltics

2007 06 05

A conference of the Baltic Regional Energy Forum is going to be held in Riga on 11 – 13 June. Similar event of this level on this topic has not been organised in Latvia for five years.

Latvia and other Baltic states are among the most dynamically developing countries of the European Union" – is stated by the organisers of the event. Such rapid development increases the demand in energy and raises the issue of the security on its supply. Despite the fact, that the cost of energy in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia is not high, in comparison to the European standards, increase of prices on energy might be expected in the nearest five years.

And finally, there are also the EU requirements, ecological requirements, and many others, which the Baltic countries shall meet alongside with other Member States of the European Union.

All these and other issues are going to be discussed at the Forum, participants of which, most probably, will be able to deliver later concrete proposals for addressing certain energy issues to their governments.

Among the topics on the agenda of the Forum that will be presented by authoritative speakers, are the following: - “Optimum energy cocktail for the Baltic States”, Strategic development of the energy sector”, “Clean energy”, “Energy efficiency and its preservation”, “Gas and oil supply to the Baltic States”, and “ The future of nuclear energy”.

The event is organised by the Baltic Economic Forum and the USA Embassy in Latvia in support by the Government of Latvia. Assistance has been also offered by the Latvian – American Financial Forum, the Latvian Commercial-Industrial Chamber, the Latvian Confederation of Employers, The Estonian Confederation of Employers, and the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists.

Prime Ministers of the Baltic States – Aigar Kalvitis, Gediminas Kirkilas and Andrus Ansip - will speak at the Conference, as well as branch ministers of the three countries. The USA will be respectfully represented – starting with the Ambassador Catherine Todd Bailey up to the high ranking officers of the White House and the delegates of the largest energetic companies (General Electric, Westinghouse, etc.).
