The energy trilemma is the interplay between carbon emissions, security of supply, and the cost of energy and the trade-offs involved in finding the right balance amongst all three. The recent conflict in Ukraine has made all the more evident the need for Europe to better manage decarbonisation, energy security, and internal social cohesion all in light of dependency on fossil fuels, war, cost of living crises and societal polarization.
This interactive event involves short contributions from speakers bringing perspectives on energy security, decarbonisation and equity from national, city and local community levels. Participants will work collaboratively in small breakout groups to explore what collaborations need to happen to manage the trilemma trade-offs. The event will give participants the opportunity to learn more about these interdependent and systemic challenges in a dynamic and interactive environment.
