The Russian war in Ukraine has not only been devastating for the Ukrainians but also led to significant political and economic disturbances across Europe and even globally.
The full impact of this war is yet to be understood. However, it is clear that the 24th of February 2022, the day of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, marked a point of no return for the established political and economic order in Ukraine, in the European Union, and the world. The energy sector is at the core of the war. The International Energy Agency calls the current energy crisis the first “truly global one” in terms of scale and complexity. We must take simultaneous action to stop the war, solve the energy crisis, and combat climate change.
This webinar will discuss how the war in Ukraine and the energy and climate crises are connected. We will explore the leading causes, the actions taken, and those to be taken in the future. In particular, we will discuss the RePowerEU – a plan adopted by the European Commission to minimize dependency on Russian fossil fuels. How effective can this plan be in helping to stop the war and solve the energy crisis? What are the opportunities and risks it carries for the clean energy transition in Europe and globally?
This lecture will be held in English.
