Economics of Climate and Energy Transition

Comprehensive policy analysis and network building programme tackling economic aspects of the European Green Deal.

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. 

This stream of work was funded by the European Climate Foundation (ECF).

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.
