Abstract

In a world dominated by uncertainties (geopolitical, economic or political), ensuring energy security has become a top priority, both at state level, as well as for supranational alliances (EU, NATO). The paper aims to present, synthetically, the evolution of the adequacy efforts of the Energy Strategies of Romania in the context of contemporary challenges of global security, insisting on two priorities: the internal needs of energy security and the configuration of the alliances that Romania is part of. Romania’s energy security concerns were amplified in 2006-2007, but, although several projects were released in public debate, none has been adopted and assumed. Our investigation was based on the current information we have analyzed, compared and synthetized so that we anticipate strategic developments expected over the next twenty years.
