The live webinar took place on Thursday, March 19th 13:00 – 14:00 CEST

Global energy markets are facing an unprecedented state of instability. Not only are markets and countries struggling with the need to implement energy transition strategies and policies, but current Corona Virus crisis and OPEC+ oil price war are presenting new challenges of an unforeseen order. Increased instability, largely linked to energy demand and supply issues, combined with an already existing battle for finance and reserves, could be a toxic combination that the current energy systems are not able to cope with. Main question will be how to deal with these threats and future unknowns to set up a more regional and global resilient energy environment.
