The war launched by President Vladimir Putin against Ukraine has put EU energy security under renowned attention.

While energy prices have reached record highs following the conflict breakout, many Europeans have started to worry not only about rising energy bills, but also about potential disruptions in oil, gas, and coal supplies.

While winter is coming to an end, strategies to wind the next cooler months are crucial. Will it be feasible to strengthen the resilience of the EU-wide energy system while advancing the sustainable agenda? Despite all attention being focused on the Ukraine crisis, the climate emergency has not passed.
