Deep Dive Webinar - June 2022

Europe's energy strategy in flux

June 15, 2022 | 3pm - 4pm UK (10am - 11am EDT)

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is threatening to undermine the European Union’s climate and energy objectives. Instead of accelerating the phase-out of fossil fuels, European policymakers are focused on securing the supply of oil and gas in order to tackle the cost-of-living crisis and avoid an economic downturn.

The twin priorities of ending energy dependency on Russia and avoiding an economic downturn threaten to have long-term implications for Europe’s energy goals.

During this webinar, our expert panel will answer:

  • Will the European Union’s energy plans become more accommodative for oil and gas use in order to avoid social and economic unrest?
  • Will the impact of the war fuel member state division regarding the European Union’s future energy priorities?
  • Will the energy crisis enhance or reduce the appetite for investment in renewables?
  • Will investment in nuclear energy become a priority for more countries as a means of reducing emissions and becoming energy self-sufficient?
