ECIPE Lunch Seminar: Energy security and economic recovery: Impact of Ukraine, Fukushima and reforms on Japan and Europe

September 26 2014
Venue: Martin's Hotel EU, Boulevard Charlemagne 80, 1000 Bruxelles
Speakers: Takayuki Sumita, Jaroslaw Pietras, Michael Hager, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 12:00

The world enters into a new-old paradigm where energy security and economic growth are closely entwined. Energy costs, access and variety of supply are now affecting a country’s competitiveness on the export markets, and are increasingly key strategic considerations for economic statecraft.

Japan, who imports 90% of its energy supply, is reforming its energy sector “one day earlier than possible” for returning to growth under Abenomics. In Europe, the major manufacturing powerhouses of France and Germany are contracting, while sanctions and geopolitics with Russia put further stress to its precarious economic recovery. Meanwhile, the public opinions of both economies are ever so divided on nuclear power.


  • What are the impact of Ukraine crisis on the energy markets in Japan & Europe?
  • What did Japan and the world learn from the Fukushima incident?
  • How could Japan and Europe reform their energy markets?


ECIPE kindly invites you to a lunch lecture on the challenges and lessons in the energy sector with:


Takayuki Sumita, Director-General, Natural Resources and Fuel, the Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry (METI) of Japan


Jaroslaw Pietras, Director-General, Environment, Education, Transport and Energy, the Council of the European Union

Michael Hager, Chief of Cabinet for Commissioner Energy


The event is moderated by Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, director of ECIPE 

A light lunch will be served (speeches starting at 12:30)
