EU-Russia Energy Relations in a Green Deal Context

March 13, 2020, 12:00-1:30pm
CGIS Knafel Building, 1737 Cambridge St., Room K450, Cambridge, MA

Join Harvard's Davis Center for a talk with Thierry Bros and Aurelie Bros on the EU's Green New Deal and EU-Russian energy relations in the context of this legislation. 

The European Union (EU) will implement new climate-related policies to unleash its Green Deal. At a time of climate emergency, the political project aim is to fast track the EU towards a net zero carbon economy. The EU Green Deal should therefore be far reaching and progressively impact most EU trading partners. As one of the biggest hydrocarbon producers, the Russian economy still relies heavily on the export of fossil fuels towards the EU. Hence, both the Russian government and the major Russian companies such as Gazprom, Novatek and Rosneft will have to redefine their strategy to take on-board the EU Green Deal. This conference will shed lights on the impact of the new EU's decisions and the Russian adaptation.
