The Masaryk University Centre in the UNESCO city of Telc hosted another instalment of the annual summer school on energy security. This time, the summer school with a subtitle "Energy Infrastructure and Policy Repercussions" took place on July 29 - August 5. The event was organized by our department with the kind support of the International Institute of Political Science of Masaryk University along with 50Hertz Transmission, ČEZ, a.s. and Central European Energy Partners (CEEP).
This year, the summer school revolved around the issue of critical energy infrastructure and related policies.

Among the lecturers, there was James Henderson from the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, Predrag Grujičič from the Energy Community, András Deák from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Michael Kranhold from the 50Hertz, Milan Sedláček from the Eustream company and Maciej Jakubik from the CEEP. The students also enjoyed lecture of the already traditional guest - Václav Bartuška, the Czech government´s special envoy for energy security.
Altogether, the summer school hosted 20 students from 10 different countries who not only took part in lectures and seminars but also field trips. This year the field trips included the visit to the Dukovany Nuclear Plant and Dalešice Hydro Power Plant.
The next instalment will be held at the same place on 28.7.-4.8.2018.
