The article deals with topical issues of industrial development of Russia and Europe in the context of sanctions policy and the possible dangers of switching to a low-carb economy. The issues related to the contradictions of economic growth, the energy crisis, the concept of industrial development, as well as acute problems of the "green" economy are studied. The most important aspects of the implementation of the "Fit for 55" package in the conditions of sanctions and the use of a strategy of total reduction of imports of Russian raw materials were touched upon. The necessity of revising the prospects associated with industrial development based on innovative energy technologies, decarbonization of the economy and the use of renewable energy resources is substantiated.
