Ecole des mines de Paris – Chair The Economics of Gas1

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a game changer for the EU gas policy. Moreover, it took place in a world context marked by rising energy prices and market turmoils that prompted increased energy bills for households and firms. Against this background, at least three important questions emerge. First, how could the EU reduce its gas imports from Russia?
Second, are LNG imports a short- and long-term solution? Finally, is REPower EU the right answer? To address them, we propose a series of roundtables gathering leading experts and practitioners.
14.30-15.30 How to cope with Russian gas, now?
Panelists: Pierre-Laurent Lucille (Chief Economist, Engie), Pierre Noël (Research Fellow, Lille), Georg Zachmann (Senior Fellow, Bruegel). Moderator: François Lévêque (Professor, Mines Paris-PSL)
15.45-16.45 Can LNG mean Liberty with Natural Gas?
Panelists: Steven Gabriel (Professor, University of Maryland), Michal Meidan (Director, Gas Research Programme, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies), Fabrice Noilhan (Directeur marché et transformation, directeur gestion des actifs gaziers Audit Officer, EDF). Moderator: Olivier Massol (Professor, IFP School)
17.00-18.00 Is REPower EU a convincing solution?
