The green recovery, Germany's energy transition and the coordination of French and German policies Closed Seminar

Ahead of Germany's EU Council presidency and amidst debates over the EU recovery plan and 2021-2027 budget, what happens in Berlin critically matters. 

Germany's energy transition has achieved several milestones but policy processes are often bumpy and economic, political and social challenges pile up. In France, challenges are to decarbonize the transport sector, accelerate energy efficiency efforts and decide over the future of nuclear energy newbuilds while including citizen demands. French-German relations are essential yet no more a driving force in Europe. Common issues include the green dimension of the recovery plan, the future of the ETS, state aids, the industrial and digital strategies, the external dimension of the Green Deal. Ifri's webinar aims to assess and discuss these key issues.
