The energy security concept has been evolving significantly over the past year and a half, leading to dramatic market dynamics. As energy-intensive industries have been directly and seriously impacted by the energy price crisis, a thorough understanding of the energy market outlook is paramount in anticipating the impact of the energy transition toward 2030 and beyond.
Andrei Covatariu is an international energy and climate change policy expert. He focuses on the energy transition process and its geopolitical, economic, and social challenges. His views and policy analyses are constantly published and cited in international media and he is speaking on the essential topic of Energy Markets in the context of new energy security layers at the upcoming CarbonZero Global Conference and Exhibition 2023 (Lyon, October 26 and 27).
Andrei is the Co-Chair of the Task Force on “Digitalization in Energy” and a Vice-Chair of the Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency, at the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), and is also working with other international organizations, such as the International Energy Agency (IEA) , think tanks (Centre on Regulation in Europe, in Brussels, GLOBSEC, in Bratislava, the Energy Policy Group, in Romania) and he is a non-resident Scholar at the Middle East Institute, in Washington DC.
Andrei is also an Associate Lecturer at the Bucharest University of Economic Studies, teaching energy and environmental policies. Mr. Covatariu holds a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering and a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Andrei also completed a Master’s in Public Policy (MPP) at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, which included a project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School.
Andrei Covatariu, international energy and climate change policy expert, CoFounder ECERA: “Energy-intensive consumers have been significantly impacted by the never-ending challenges in the global energy markets – from much-needed environmentally-driven policies, all the way to energy security concerns generated by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. So, for these reasons, industrial consumers now face difficult decisions, which call for agile and adaptive business strategies, in a uncertain global context.”
ECERA is a network of sustainability practitioners aiming to produce policy-relevant knowledge, helping governments, companies, NGOs, universities, and others navigate the various facets of sustainability. Inspired by the ecological economics paradigm with its focus on sustainability-growth trade-offs and distributional fairness, ECERA will promote sustainable development and the circular economy model by producing interdisciplinary, pragmatic, and actionable knowledge, engaging with diverse stakeholders, and using effective communication tools.
ECERA will seek to influence the agenda of organizations and the public, helping promote a more complex understanding of the challenges and choices behind sustainable development and the circular model, with a particular focus on the developing countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Middle East, South Asia, and Latin America.
