Energy crisis: EU policy response and potential implications for the European Green Deal
The European energy system is in the midst of an unprecedented crisis. Russian gas supplies have been cut by more than 80 percent in the space of a few months, pushing gas and electricity prices to unsustainable levels. This event will outline the main responses deployed by both national governments and the EU to respond to the crisis, and will discuss possible short- and medium-term prospects, with a focus on the interface between the energy crisis and the European Green Deal.
