In this week’s episode of In a Nutshell, NGW discussed Russian-EU energy relations and the energy transition in Europe with Kirsten Westphal, a senior associate at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs.

The EU’s energy relationship with Russia centres around gas, and this relationship has evolved significantly over time. Gazprom’s embattled Nord Stream 2 project faces challenges on multiple fronts, not least the threat of further US sanctions, but concerns about the pipeline’s impact on bloc energy security are largely unjustified. Russia could emerge as a key supplier to a future European hydrogen market.

Karel Beckman, Editor in Chief of Gas Transitions, a publication by Natural Gas World, discusses with Alex Barnes, Visiting Research Fellow with the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, the latest paper he co-authored with Katja Yafimava: EU Hydrogen Vision: regulatory opportunities and challenges

Energy investments over the next 30 years will have to be planned with great care for the good of society and industry.

The irresistible force of global population growth has to meet the immovable limit of 1.5 degrees C temperature increase, and the related net zero carbon end-stop of 2050. Growing middle classes will expect better quality of life, cleaner air and so on. We expect this to mean higher energy consumption and continuing need for oil and gas.

Lewis McDonald, Global Head of Energy, and Partner, at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP joins William Powell and Joseph Murphy for a live discussion on the importance of energy investments in this day and age.
