After the winter: Accelerating the climate crisis or supercharging the energy transition?

The geopolitical events of 2022 have highlighted Europe’s unsustainable dependence on fossil fuels. While the initial response has been characterized by political firefighting and a period of unprecedented price volatility, it is now time to reflect on the longer-term outlook.

  • Will the wave of increased energy awareness lead to lasting structural change in the energy market?
  • How can the renewable energy industry cope with booming demand?
  • Will decision-makers manage to get ahead of the curve and create the framework conditions to unlock the necessary low-carbon investment flows?
  • Or is there a risk of sliding back, as the pressure to implement short-term fixes creates new barriers for a successful energy transition?

These are the questions that were discussed at the 13th St. Gallen Forum for Management of Renewable Energies (#REMforum).

All the best !
