Weaning Europe off Russian Natural Gas

Past Event

March 2, 2022

9:00 am - 10:30 am

The international response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, although still in flux, will bring about a high degree of economic and financial isolation of Russia. With soaring inflation, tight supply chains, and rising global energy prices, the economic consequences could be significant.

The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a panel to explore the implications for global energy markets and climate policy, and of a potential European decision to wean the continent off Russian natural gas.
