The geopolitics of the energy transition: What are the prospects for Europe and major global actors?
While a green transition has begun to unfold in several countries, new geopolitical challenges have also emerged in the energy arena. Fossil fuel exporters are confronted with the risk of losing substantial revenues, whereas leaders in the transition are trying to secure access to new resources (rare earths, critical minerals) and competing in green technologies. As worsening climate change increases the pressure on governments to decarbonize, the development of advanced renewable energy installations, smart grids, new power lines, green hydrogen and new digital and green technologies will shape energy and climate policy in the coming years.
What are the main geopolitical developments and global challenges in the field of the energy transition? What is Europe’s position in this rapidly evolving context?
This webinar also provides an opportunity to present and discuss FIIA’s latest Briefing Paper on the topic.
