Research from Brookings has  provided food for thought on “Refreshing European Energy Security Policy: How the U.S. Can Help” is a topic of importance in this intelligence age. The complexity of energy security is prominent when considering technology and infrastructural penetration points.

“The U.S. can help Central and Eastern Europe and Ukraine by refreshing its European energy security policy. The current crisis validates America’s long-term policy goal of diversifying Europe’s energy supply to diminish Russia’s ability to use energy as a coercive tool against its neighbors. While much progress has been made, with bipartisan support, Russia still dominates Central and Eastern European (CEE) natural gas supply, and recent events call for refocusing our efforts. Stiffening the EU’s spine to create a truly competitive internal energy market, promoting the efforts of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on internal market reform in CEE countries, supporting indigenous gas production and taking steps to building a reliable energy bridge to Europe through U.S. exports should be the cornerstones of U.S. policy. While no panacea, respected U.S. energy experts have been too quick to dismiss a linkage between Europe (and Ukraine’s) energy insecurity and the utility of expediting U.S. hydrocarbon exports,” reports Brookings.

The critical nature of energy security will be managed by planned and/or forced action. The work of nations to understand the infrastructure’s synthesis with Internet of everything is relevant to the safety of power, production and distribution.

Continued research looking at the readiness and prepared strategies of energy security are being produced for economic, health and safety. The ability to focus on bilateral and bipartisan strategies are required to support not only natural gas but the adoption of agile renewable development.

The related interconnectedness to energy is technology. The nexus of energy and technology is vital to understanding energy security. Technology undergirds  energy as a practical, functional, as well as operationalizes capacity and maintenance.  Energy cannot be peeled from data; therefore, energy and security.
