Addressing Russia's Energy Dominance in Europe
MetadataShow full item record
Russia is one of the largest producers of energy in the world, especially when it comes to the production of natural gas. Because of its close proximity to Europe, it has always been a reliable supplier of natural gas and energy for European countries. That energy reliance can come at cost that can strain the relationship between the U.S. and countries in Europe as well as weaken institutions such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This policy proposal looks at the issue of Russia’s energy dominance in Europe and puts forth an alternative source of natural gas that Europe could import from in order to diversify their natural gas supply and lessen their dependence on Russian exports.
