How to achieve the energy transition – from the Climate Action Summit to green recovery and beyond: A webinar series
The world has changed radically in the year since the Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit. The world is now facing a global pandemic and the worst economic downturn in decades. The COVID-19 pandemic has the potential to unravel important achievements on both the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement, but the recovery from the pandemic also carries the opportunity of a transformation of global energy systems and thus accelerate climate action and development. Energy transition can play a key role in securing the achievement of a global green recovery. It will be essential to demonstrate that this transformation is possible, with the right policies, projects and investments.
At the Climate Action Summit, nine main initiatives related to energy transition emerged. These initiatives each aim to address different aspects of the energy transition, including decarbonising the shipping sector, putting the world on a path to 3 percent annual energy efficiency improvement, reducing emissions from the cooling sector, accelerating climate financing, increasing access to sustainable energy in LDCs and in SIDS, increasing renewable energy capacity in Latin America, catalyzing a new market for energy storage solutions and achieving universal access to clean cooking.
One year on from the Climate Action Summit, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark would like to take this opportunity to showcase the results these initiatives have achieved in the past year, present and discuss the visions of the initiative in the time ahead. It will provide an opportunity to discuss how the initiatives can support countries' efforts to recover better and greener and contribute to enhancing their NDCs.
