Video of the session: Catalonia facing the new energy challenges

European energy dependence, the rise in energy prices, the economic and social consequences of the energy crisis, the geopolitical origins of this crisis or the necessary energy transition towards renewable sources are topics that Russia's war in Ukraine has put it at the center of the local, European and international debate. Although the European Union has made significant steps forward in the aftermath of the war, its energy transition towards renewable sources, and more in line with its sustainable development goals, is still in its infancy. EU policies will have immediate effects in Barcelona, ​​Catalonia and Spain and, above all, will show the growing connection between international crises and the daily lives of citizens.

In the fourth session of the cycle "Catalonia facing the new energy challenges" we had the participation of Albert Castellanos, Secretary of Business and Competitiveness of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Joan Vila, CEO of LC Paper and president of the commission energy from PIMEC, Esther Izquierdo, industrial engineer and director of research and innovation at ARCbcn and Laura Garcia, industrial engineer and spokesperson for the energy commission of the College of Engineers. The session was moderated by Oriol Aspachs, technical secretary of the Board of Directors of the Cercle d'Economy.
