12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The sharp rise in energy prices is having severe economic, social and political impacts on a European Union that is fully committed to decarbonisation. Is this a temporary or a structural price spike? Can national and EU public policies turn this energy price crisis into an opportunity? Can the energy transition increase Europe’s strategic autonomy and reduce geopolitical risks? What are the prospects for green hydrogen in the European transition? What role should citizens play in reaching Net Zero? What are the implications of the energy price spike for European climate policy? Are there any broader implications for international climate governance? These and other issues related to the challenges of the European energy transition will be dealt with by a panel of four experts from leading European think tanks.
