Access Presentation

I have prepared a presentation which I delivered at the first international conference (turned on-line at the last moment) on the European Green Deal, held in Sofia last week. It is my pleasure to send the presentation to your attention. I have deliberately omitted in it any comments on U.S. energy and American attitudes to net zero by 2050 in view of the forthcoming presidential election.

Thanks for sharing Peter-- I'm curious if you think down the road the European Green Deal will have any direct impact on the U.S. sector. Will U.S. climate policy try to adopt similar measures or be forced to make any sort of changes to keep up? Obviously, as you note, a lot remains unknown right now because of the pending election so your answer would be purely speculative-- but will this force the U.S.'s hand in any way?
