Webinar: The electrification of the economy at a key inflection point

  • Global electrification is vital if the world is to decarbonize and meet the Paris Agreement. Spikes in energy prices and concerns over Russian gas supply are showing how vulnerable the world is while it is reliant on fossil fuels. The long-term answer lies in using renewable energy, building out the smart electricity grid and capitalizing on energy efficiency solutions.

  • In this webinar, Roman Boner, Portfolio Manager and Michael Studer, Deputy Portfolio Manager, share their views on the current energy markets and forces at play. What do high energy and carbon prices, supply chain shortages and inflation fears mean for Robeco’s Smart Energy strategy, which invests in clean energy sources and energy-efficiency technologies that will transform the sector and decarbonize our economies.
