This week-long course on energy security provides you with an opportunity to gain knowledge about global energy tendencies and perspectives and how they correlate with regional and national developments of the European and the Baltic gas and electricity markets, as well as the remaining challenges the Baltic region faces in its efforts to enhance its energy security. The course includes a site visit to controlled zone at Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant which is of the same type as the one that exploded in Chernobyl in 1986. Ignalina NPP is in a process of decommissioning expected to be finalized by 2038.

Vilnius Summer School invites experts and scientists to share their knowledge and experience in the field of energy security with students and any other persons from abroad who might be interested in energy security issues.
Energy Security Course aims to explore specific aspects of global and regional energy transition, including EU Member States’ efforts to pursue increased interconnectivity, including synchronous operation of Member States with the European Networks, enhanced security of energy supply, nuclear safety within and beyond the borders of the EU and the EU ability to speak with one voice, particularly its bargaining power vis-à-vis third countries and address energy security challenges in the neighbouring countries.
