Abstract

As a result of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine and economic retaliation measures, energy prices have reached record levels – and they continue to rise. To keep us from freezing in the coming winter, countries across Europe are currently discussing and/or already taking measures that could exacerbate the climate crisis even further. We therefore need (financing) measures that accelerate the green transition on the one hand and keep large parts of Europe’s population from energy-induced poverty on the other.

  • To what extent does geo-economic turmoil push the green transition into the background?
  • What measures do we need to stop the energy price spiral while at the same time ensuring the financing of the green transition?
  • What effects does the current energy price increase have on the green transition in general?
  • Where do the funds we need to finance the green transition come from?
