The conference was held in Inter Expo Center, Sofia with organizers Bulgarian Energy and Mining Forum, in partnership with UNWE and the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria. The dynamic changes in the energy development of the EU member states as well as the world and the new threats such as the risks to ensuring the continuity of supply of energy raw materials and energy, the dominance of geopolitical over economic interests in a number of monopolistic supplies as well as the growing terrorist threats put the subject of energy security at the heart of national security. The security of energy supply and energy resources becomes the first priority in the energy policy of the EU member states.
The main objectives of the conference are to discuss the relationship between national security and security of supply, and the methods and technical means to increase their reliability against potential disruptions and terrorist attacks on the energy engineering infrastructure will be the other main focus of the discussions.
