Energy Security – Concepts and Indicators


Recent geopolitical developments revived scientists' and politicians'interest in the topic of energy security which has become an umbrellaterm covering a wide range of concerns. A key indicator of (in-) securityis the price of energy resources (or its variation). However, a comprehensive and commonly accepted indicator measuring energy security is lacking. Moreover, studies on energy security are in general rather heterogeneous concerning their focus and methodology. The conference embraces theoretical, empirical and policy oriented contributions. It brings together international scholars to frame concepts and indicators in the analysis of energy security.
