Energy Policy and Climate Change

The Energy Policy and Climate Change research program focuses on current issues of energy and climate policy in Slovakia and the region of Central Europe, especially in the context of the development of any EU policies. The program focuses on issues of energy security and energy transition and the challenges within the sector, such as decarbonisation or increasing the share of renewables. An important part of the program is the Central European Energy Conference (CEEC), which aims to create a platform for negotiation of key players in the energy sector of Central European countries and at the same time contribute to finding better solutions in the field of energy and climate policy. SFPA is also a member of the V4 Energy Think Tank Platform, which is a permanent network of think tanks facilitating energy-related and policy-oriented research and analysis with a regional focus, building on its member institutions’ expertise in energy studies.
