A panel of experts will discuss the evolving situation in the Russia–Ukraine war and its implications for energy security.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has presented the US and its European allies with the prospect of major disruptions in the delivery of Russian oil and gas. Following the invasion, the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany has been put on hold and sanctioned, and the US, the UK and the EU have announced steps to reduce their reliance on Russian hydrocarbon exports.
To mitigate an energy crisis, the US is spearheading efforts to redirect supplies of oil and gas to Europe, but any solution will come at a painfully high cost. The key questions to be addressed by the panel include:
- To what extent does the West rely on Russian energy, and what are the security of supply implications?
- What are the risks to critical energy infrastructure?
- What are the alternatives to Russian sources of energy?
The panellists are:
- The Rt. Hon. Charles Hendry CBE, former UK Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change
- Elisabeth Braw, Senior Fellow, American Enterprise Institute and RUSI Associate Fellow
- Jayesh Parmar, Partner – Energy Markets and Analytics, Baringa
The webinar will be moderated by The Rt. Hon. the Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom, RUSI Advisory Board Member and former Chair, House of Commons Defence Committee.
