A turning point in the energy sector – On the way to the “new normal”?
September 27, 2022 / 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. / Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences, Berlin
The Russia-Ukraine war represents a turning point – not only for the energy world of Europe. Partnerships that had grown over decades and parameters that were believed to be safe became obsolete almost overnight. Questions of security of supply move into the focus of the energy transition discussion as well as the affordability of energy and the balance between the dimensions of the energy policy target triangle. Against the background of the dramatic upheavals in the energy world, we would like to discuss current geopolitical developments and new policy approaches with decision-makers from all over the world and our international audience, present international models of energy supply and bring the global perspective into the national debate. What could the « New Normal » look like? What options do we have? Where are the limits? What will the energy world look like in 5 to 10 years?
