INVITATION: Café Evropa online: The future of European energy - how to ensure stable and clean energy sources without Russia?

We would like to invite you to the Café Evropa debate on 21 March at 17:30 on the topic "The future of European energy - how to ensure stable and clean energy sources without Russia?". The Russian invasion of Ukraine has, among other things, further fuelled the question of energy security in the Czech Republic and the EU and the future of energy in our country. The current security situation points to the need to diversify energy sources as soon as possible, i.e. to secure energy supplies from different regions and countries in order to avoid excessive dependence on Russia. There are also views in the public debate that coal extraction could be temporarily increased, which would enable some countries to cover any shortfalls in resources. Is a complete or even partial halt of Russian gas supplies to the Czech Republic and the European Union a realistic option? What impact would this have on our energy security? How much further increase in energy prices can we expect in this case? How should EU countries react and help households and industry cope with the expected increase? Could a possible temporary increase in coal extraction mean a return to fossil fuels and the end of the EU's climate ambitions? Or could the current problematic situation further accelerate the energy transition?
