Europe’s energy system facing multiple shocks: market adjustments and policy responses Ifri Green Deal Virtual Lunch Series

Russia’s war with Ukraine has multiple spillover effects on Europe’s energy systems which face multiple threats adding up to systemic weaknesses and challenges. 

Gas, oil, coal and electricity supply security are under threat and economies and societies are threatened by soaring prices fueling inflation. While hardships are inevitable, urgent actions are needed to foster the resilience of energy systems, cope with unprecedented tensions and challenges while not giving up on core decarbonization objectives. What is the threat assessment and short-term perspectives? What immediate actions can be taken on the supply and demand sides, and what are the long-term implications for the EU’s decarbonization strategy?
