No easy solutions to Europe’s energy security challenges

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has pushed energy security to the top of the policy agenda in Europe, raising questions about whether the desire to reduce dependence on Russian oil and gas will come at the expense of efforts to decarbonize the region’s economy. What are the options for European countries as they try to become more energy independent, and which countries are best placed to do so? And while there is no easy way to fill the energy gap in the short term, could the Russia-Ukraine crisis have the long-term effect of accelerating Europe’s pivot toward greater adoption of clean energy? 

Guests: Rahul Ghosh, Managing Director – ESG, Moody’s Investors Service, and Douglas Segars, Managing Director – Infrastructure Finance, Moody’s Investors Service.

Host: Sarah Carlson, Senior Vice President – Sovereign Risk Group, Moody’s Investors Service.
