The Russian war in Ukraine and Europe's current energy crisis are inextricably linked. Recent crisis-response techniques in the European Union appear to have been successful for the continent, resulting in just enough stored energy to survive through the coming winter. Looking ahead, medium- and long-term policies targeted at diversifying energy sources will be vital for economic and environmental sustainability in Europe. This week, we spoke with Max Gruenig, a climate and energy economist and Professor at Georgetown's Walsh School of Foreign Service. Our conversation touches on the energy crisis, Europe's most recent efforts to combat it, and Ukraine's future in the EU.

The Europe Desk is a podcast from the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. It brings together leading experts working on the most pertinent issues facing Europe and transatlantic relations today.
