15:00 - 16:30  | Panel 2| The energy crisis and its impact on the economic recovery after the pandemic  

After a year and a half of economic stagnation because of the COVID19 pandemic, the efforts made in the reactivation plans have encountered an added obstacle: the energy crisis. This panel will analyse what are the causes of the crisis. Could the price rise be foreseen? Could it have been prevented? Secondly, it will be analysed how the energy crisis has impacted and what consequences the energy crisis will have in the different regions of the Atlantic. Finally, it will be discussed how this rise to the de-carbonization energy transition will affect.
