Conference : Bridging the Gap between European Energy Security and Climate Transition Policy

EURACTIV Bulgaria is pleased to invite you at the upcoming Hybrid Conference Bridging the Gap between European Energy Security and Climate Transition Policy, taking place on Tuesday, 29 March 2022 from 09:30 - 11:00 CET.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine puts the European energy and climate security through its most difficult test so far. The energy crisis that began even before the war has become a stark reminder that the energy policy trilemma of achieving affordability, reliability of supply, and environmental sustainability at the same time, is far from solved. The spike in energy prices aggravated by the excessive over-reliance on Russian oil, gas, and coal imports has, thus, clearly demonstrated the need for a new European Energy and Climate Security Strategy. Its development and implementation, however, divides the countries into policy takers and policymakers. Bridging the policy ambition gap calls for introducing new evidence-based policy instruments to monitor member-states’ progress, such as a European Energy and Climate Security Risk Index.

EURACTIV Bulgaria invites you to join this hybrid conference to address these issues with our panelists.
