Energy prices are soaring. The risk of poverty is increasing. Millions of Europeans already live in energy poverty, struggling to pay bills and live a decent life. While the Russian Federation’s horrific invasion of Ukraine has shifted the geopolitics of decarbonization, the EU’s ambitions to tackle the structural causes of energy poverty and accelerate the transition to renewable energy are under threat. 

SOLIDAR, Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), Social Platform and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) are hosting a roundtable to ask: What can the EU do to rapidly respond to the needs of the energy crisis without sacrificing the just energy transition?

The roundtable was held in person at the conference centre TownHall Europe, Brussels.

This timely debate brought together civil society and institutions to tackle this question, share insights and explore how both social justice and climate action can be guiding principles in shaping EU solutions. The roundtable also touched upon current EU strategies, including the Social Climate Fund and REPowerEU.
