The European Union’s (EU) efforts to achieve a carbon-neutral economy present a unique and timely opportunity to strengthen European energy security and to broaden transatlantic cooperation. The “European Green Deal,” was proposed in 2019 and is Europe’s new growth strategy, which seeks to transform the EU into a climate-neutral economy by 2050. This objective builds on the commitments made by the EU under the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030 compared to 1990. Clean energy, new technologies, along with natural gas, will play a critical role in helping the EU reach this ambitious goal.
Director General Juul-Jørgensen will discuss the challenges and opportunities of enshrining the 2050 climate neutrality objective into law and how to ensure transatlantic cooperation throughout the process. In addition, Ambassador Morningstar and Director General Juul-Jørgensen will explore specific ways the US and the EU can work together in the areas of energy markets, new technologies, financing strategies, energy sector cyber security, supply chain security, and ways to tackle societal issues brought on by the energy transition.
This timely presentation and fireside chat on the European Green Deal and the future transatlantic agenda is on the record and open to the public and the media.
