Germany’s Ampel coalition and the energy crises: any Zeitenwende or more of the same? Visioconférence

Germany managed to overcome the brutal energy decoupling from Russia, and the energy price crises, and greenhouse gas emissions are in decrease. Europe’s largest economy now needs to cope with the Constitutional court budget spending limitations, internal coalition struggles, competitiveness of its possibly eroding energy intensive industries, the rise of populism, the need to build out the electricity system with renewables, expanded grids and flexibility tools, the need to progress with sector coupling and develop the hydrogen economy, but also implement Fit for 55 and prepare for -90% emission by 2040.

Meanwhile, the global environmental can be expected to further deteriorate. These are key issues to be discussed during this webinar.
