Step-by-step, Russia has stopped supplying Europe with natural gas. This has caused gas prices to increase more than ten-fold, driving up electricity prices to unprecedented high levels. European energy consumers will see their overall bill increase by hundreds of billions of Euros, posing an existential threat to low-income citizens and energy-intensive firms. Unsurprisingly, this has triggered intense public policy responses, ranging from tax holidays to cash support and, most likely, large-scale interventions on electricity markets. Centre for Sustainability staff has contributed through conducting research, explaining the crisis to media and the public, and advising senior policy makers. Here you’ll find a selection of resources and updates from our research, media engagement, and events.
Europe is in the midst of the most severe energy crisis in at least a generation. Read about how experts from the Centre for Sustainability are responding.
