Trilemma in Turmoil

24.06.22 - 24.06.2022



Multiple crises are currently causing shocks to energy systems worldwide and in Europe. Most recently, the current conflict in Ukraine has exposed additional vulnerabilities in European energy systems and markets.

Join us on Friday 24 June at 10.00 am-12.00 pm CET for a conversation about the impacts of these shocks and the challenges governments and industry are facing to manage the Energy Trilemma - equity/access, sustainability, energy security - in the short, medium and longer term.

Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss headline-making topics, including:

  • What measures are countries across Europe taking to mitigate the effects of high energy prices and protect (vulnerable) consumers? 
  • How sustainable are such measures, how can affordable, equitable energy access be ensured in the longer term?
  • What do the current shocks mean for the energy transition: will they lead to an acceleration of efforts to implement net-zero solutions or are we seeing the opposite happening? What are short-term, medium and longer-term effects?
  • How can these trilemma dimensions best be managed in balance with energy security?  

From Latvia to Spain and from the UK to Bulgaria, a fantastic expert panel from across our region will share their views:
