he problem’s importance was stressed by the former Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, Mirek Topolanek, who, during the opening session entitled Energy Policy in Europe – Business and Politics, stated that Europe is facing the necessity to develop strategic solutions to the problems of the energy sector. The extended programme of the forum included 11 debates focusing on numerous vital issues of delivery safety, cooperation and international challenges, new tech- nologies and renewable energy sources.
