National Critical Energy Infrastructure Protection in Europe

European Energy Seminar 27th – 28th September 2012, Mercure Hotel Berlin an der Charité, Berlin, Germany

PRLog - June 28, 2012 - BERLIN, Germany -- National Critical Energy Infrastructures vary within the different Member States of the EU. However they all have common challenges: all are obliged to ensure that they can continue to function in the most adverse conditions. Their breakdown can have catastrophic consequences. Latest example was the fatal Fukushima breakdown. The Europe-wide cross-linking of energy infrastructures results in an immense interdependency of the Member States’ energy infrastructures and in a high vulnerability of the entire energy system.

At this European Energy seminar participants will receive advanced knowledge on:

•   How can National Critical Energy Infrastructures be protected against man-made or natural threats;
•   What are the best strategies to manage major blackouts;
•   How to assess and manage the risks for Critical Energy Infrastructures;
•   What are the new threats and how do you prepare infrastructures for these challenges?
•   How to identify the interdependencies between CEIs of different sectors
•   How to cope with cyber threats against vulnerable SCADA systems and networks
•   How Public Private Partnerships (PPP) can facilitate the protection of Critical Energy Infrastructures

The lecturers are European experts and practitioners among others from:

•   DG Energy, European Commission
•   Emergency Preparedness Section, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
•   International Energy Security Programme, Centre for European Security Strategies, Germany
•   European Centre for Energy and Resource Security (EUCERS) of King‘s College London

Expected Participants:

Operators and other stakeholders dealing with Critical Energy Infrastructures from public and private sector
