"Germany accounts for 20% of the European Union’s economy but has no domestic energy source and depends on Russian fossil fuels, especially natural gas. With Russia under a raft of international sanctions in response to its war on Ukraine, it is using its most effective weapon against Europe - gas supplies.  Much of Europe feels the strain from Russia’s squeeze on natural gas deliveries. Yet, no other country is as exposed as the region’s biggest economy, where nearly half the homes rely on the fuel for heating. Germany has little time to lose to avert an energy shortage this winter that would be unprecedented for a developed nation. 

Germany’s hard choice is balancing short-term energy needs and long-term security.  

In the sixteenth webinar in the GWU Leadership in Our time Webinar Series, host Andras Simonyi, former Hungarian Minister to the United States and NATO, sits down with Christian Democrat Union (CDU)’s shadow minister for energy, Jens Spahn.  They will discuss Germany’s future in the face of war, the Russian energy crisis, climate change, and the implications for the European Union and the Western Alliance".
