About this event
This winter will test Europe’s commitment to transforming its energy markets and defending Ukraine. Despite promises from European governments to secure the energy supplies while keeping prices down, Europe faces worrying economic forecasts. What actions must be taken to mitigate the number of households confronting energy poverty this winter? What would wholesale market reform of the energy sector look like? How has Russia’s strategic manipulation of Europe’s energy sources changed the geopolitical calculus in Europe? To discuss these questions and more, we will speak with experts Lisa Fischer and Oliver Ruhnau in this month’s edition of #TransatlanticTuesdays.
