Bruegel’s Climate and Energy Programme covers five main thematic areas: 1) EGD governance and implementation, 2) Macroeconomics of decarbonisation, 3) Green diplomacy and geopolitics, 4) Green finance, 5) Green trade (EU-US negotiations on steel and aluminium agreement).
The overall objective of the work is ensuring Europe’s decarbonisation pathway is consistent with the 2050 climate neutrality target and promoting increased global cooperation on climate action.

A stronger adaptation governance framework would benefit adaptation efforts.

We outline the case for ‘commercialisation contracts’ (a form of carbon contracts for difference) to provide this transparent competition.
The EU needs to develop a strong green industrial policy. What should Europe's strategy look like and how can we achieve it?
Strategic Networks and Stakeholders Engagement
Bruegel convenes key stakeholders from different sectors and geographies - policymakers from EU Member States’ ministries of finance, central banks and EU institutions, chief economists from Bruegel corporate and institutional members - to discuss topical issues related to green macro-fiscal developments, green investments, governance in regular bi-monthly calls.
Bruegel is a member of the Think Tank Network on European Green Deal, which comes together in regular monthly video calls to discuss specific aspects and implementation of the EGD at national levels, and works towards overcoming the bridge between national and EU policymaking.
