Join us on 1 December 2022 at 1.00pm GMT/2.00pm CET on Zoom for a discussion between Dr Katja Yafimava, Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, and Professor Dr Andreas Goldthau, Director of the Willy Brandt School and Franz Haniel Professor for Public Policy at the Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences, University of Erfurt. The discussion will be moderated by Charlie Cooper, Senior Energy Correspondent at POLITICO.
Together, the speakers will discuss the two countries’ approaches to the energy crisis and ask: how well prepared are we for the upcoming winter, and the next one? Which learnings have been made and how have they impacted the UK’s and Germany’s efforts towards Net Zero, especially with the results of the recent COP27 in Egypt?
This event is part of our British-German Climate Action Event Series, organised jointly by the British-German Association (BGA) and the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft.
