The Green Transition in the EU and Japan during geopolitical and energy market turmoil


With Russia’s war on Ukraine, energy security has returned to the top of the political agenda. Europe and Asia are both scrambling to reduce their dependency on Russian energy while competing for scarce alternatives such as LNG. Households as well as businesses, both large and small, face the pain of high energy prices. Longer-term, the energy transition required to reach long-term climate targets will also contribute to energy security, with increased renewables and energy efficiency. Shorter-term, it may be challenging to pursue both strong investment in deep decarbonisation, including in energy-intensive industries, while maintaining energy security and industrial competitiveness. How do the EU and Japan approach these twin challenges and what are the prospects for EU-Japan cooperation? During this public webinar, we will discuss these issues with key experts from both Japan and the EU.

This webinar will take place from 19:00 – 20:15 Japan Time (11:00 – 12:15 CET)

Followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Registration for this event will be ending on November 23th 16:30 (CET)
