Session description

Politico Live

Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 rocked the EU energy market. Two years on, the Continent has done a decent job at cutting back on Russian fossil fuel imports while keeping the lights on. At the same time, renewables have been booming, especially wind and solar, and the emissions of the bloc’s power grid have massively dropped last year. With elections looming in the two sides of the Atlantic and fierce competition from China on green tech, the EU is forced to bolster its energy sovereignty. How will this unfold during the next mandate?
