The Vienna Forum on European Energy Law is an annual joint initiative of the FSR Energy Union Law Area and the Energy Community Secretariat which aims to bridge the gap in energy debate between the EU and Energy Community. This year, for the 8th edition of the forum, we will be moving online with four webinars across four weeks, focused on the solidarity principle, the European climate law, carbon pricing, and the role of the private sector in the energy transition. To discuss these topics, we will bring together a panel of experts for a roundtable debate and a live Q&A session with our audience.
In this webinar, we will take a close look at the role of carbon pricing in the EU transition to carbon neutrality. Could it be the silver bullet?
We will look at the new proposals in the EU, including the prospect of a carbon border adjustment mechanism, which if brought into effect, would radically alter the internal market. But is it feasible? And could such a mechanism be WTO compliant? We will also beyond Europe to critically assess the best paths forward.
