Energy Group

Eurasian Energy Group

The Aleksanteri Institute's Eurasian Energy Group was launched in autumn 2005. The group includes the Institute's own researchers and associated experts, along with a network of public and private sector partners presently delving into the social, political, environmental, and security policy implications that energy may have outside the economic sector.

The group's starting point is that while debate surrounding the Europe's future energy security has become more acute, academic analysis and commentary is focused along a very narrow stretch of the very broad topic of energy.

The group therefore aims at conducting relevant academic research on energy in a Eurasian context, identifying the future implications of energy, increasing opportunities for a wider energy dialogue through public, private and academic sector partnership, and contributing to a broader understanding of the Eurasian energy dialogue in the EU.
