Plan that will accelerate our progress towards a safe and clean energy future," biden said at a joint news conference with von der leyen. "This plan will focus on two key issues: the first , to help europe reduce its dependence on russian natural gas in the shortest possible time. Second, to reduce the overall demand for natural gas in europe, the united states and europe will carry out various cooperation to maximize the supply of renewable energy.”
On the first point above, biden said: "The united states will work with international partners to ensure that europe can get an additional 15 billion cubic meters of natural gas this year. And as the eu strives to stop buying natural gas from russia by 2030, we will logo design ensure that by 2030 years ago, 50 billion cubic meters of natural gas in the eu market will be supplied by the united states.” in order to achieve this goal, the council of the european union and member states will work together on the following three points: 1. Storage of european natural gas; 2. Build more infrastructure to obtain natural gas; 3. Take measures to improve the efficiency of natural gas use.
Even if the united states provides european countries with 50 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year in the future, it is still not enough for european countries to completely cut off natural gas cooperation with russia. Von der leyen mentioned that 50 billion cubic meters of natural gas can only replace one-third of what russia currently supplies europe. However, she believes that the united states and europe are currently on the right path to diversify access to natural gas, shifting from russia to our friends and partners, these trusted suppliers. In addition, the united states and europe have also strengthened cooperation on the two major issues of food crisis and information security, and announced new cooperation plans to strengthen democratic resilience and protect human rights in ukraine and neighboring countries.
