This week, we’re road tripping across Europe. 

In Poland’s coal country, diplomats are breathing in smog-filled air, preparing to strengthen a global climate deal. In France, angry protestors are rioting in the streets over a gas tax as part of the president’s climate policy. And in the U.K., Britons may leave the European Union without a deal in place, threatening the health of energy markets and the economics of renewable power plants.

So as we close out the year, what better time to take a tour of the top European stories? During our tour, maybe we’ll scope out a few subsidy-free offshore wind farms and battery manufacturing plants along the way.

We're joined this week by Jason Deign, GTM’s prolific contributing writer, who reports on a range of international energy topics for us. He’s with us from Barcelona, Spain.
